(b) Faculty Deans - The ten Faculty Deans will report to the Provost/DVC;

(c) Professoriate Staff - The Chair Professors, Professors, Associate Professors, and Assistant Professors will report to the respective Heads of Departments and Faculty Deans;

The Director of Human Resources reports to the Executive Vice-President (EVP). The Director of Communications will report to the VP/PVC (Institutional Advancement). The Director of China Affairs will report to the VP/PVC (Global);

(e) Other academic support services - The Dean of Student Affairs and the Dean of Graduate School will report to the Provost/DVC; and
