All meetings start at 4:00 p.m. and will be via Zoom for the foreseeable future. Two weeks prior to each meeting, an email will be sent with the link to preregister for the meeting, along with the CONFIDENTIAL agenda and supporting materials. After preregistering you will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link to join the meeting.
In order to ensure a quorum*, please attend if you are able, especially if you are a designated quorum officer of your department or program.
*Voting in the Joint Boards of Permanent Officers. Full professors whose primary or fully joint appointments are in a Faculty of Arts and Sciences department may vote, as may full professors of professional schools with secondary appointments in a Faculty of Arts and Sciences department and explicit Corporation approval for such voting rights. The only exception to this rule is for faculty in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry who are assigned to vote in the School of Medicine’s Board of Permanent Officers and may not also vote in the Joint Boards of Permanent Officers of Yale College and the Graduate School. By long standing custom, a quorum for the conduct of business at a meeting of the Joint Boards consists of 37 members eligible to vote. No vote has force if the number of votes, plus recorded abstentions, falls short of that number. Tenure appointments are forwarded to the Corporation only upon an affirmative vote by two-thirds of the members present and eligible to vote. All other appointments are approved by majority vote.
