Departments, Major Centers, and Institutes that report directly to the DGSOM Dean may request financial support from the Dean to fund academic and programmatic investments that maintain and enhance the DGSOM’s status of excellence.
Such institutional endeavors include, but are not limited to:
Chairs and Institute/Center Directors may submit requests for Dean’s support every quarter. Requests for support for urgent retentions may be submitted off-cycle.
We are committed to evaluating the request process and making modifications if necessary. Please do not hesitate to contact Anja Paardekooper with any questions or concerns about the process.

Requests for Dean’s support for recruitment packages will be considered in a two-step process:
Please note that Research Themes do not currently have their own FTE or recruitment funds.
The Themes provide input on South Tower space assignments, and departments are asked, whenever relevant, to include the Themes in faculty searches and have Theme leaders endorse requests for recruitment support. A separate Theme-centered seed grant and equipment support program is under development, and the Themes may be asked to comment on other departmental requests that are relevant to the mission of a Theme.
Moreover, Theme Leaders may ask for resources for cross-departmental programs, which the relevant Chairs will be asked to endorse.
