Dean’s Academic Board (DAB)

The structure and organization of the DAB is defined in Article I. The DAB shall be advisory to the Dean concerning all matters that relate to the internal academic affairs of the School of Medicine. These matters shall include faculty appointments, dismissals, and advancements in rank; student admission policies and procedures; administrative policies concerning the academic missions of the School; and major curricular matters affecting the School of Medicine.

Votes of the DAB may be solicited by the Dean for matters that require input across the community (i.e., faculty, staff and/or students). Members of the DAB may also be called upon to serve pursuant to other policies of Geisel/Dartmouth (e.g., but not limited to the “Organization of the Faculty of Dartmouth College” (OFDC), the Professionalism Policy for Geisel)
