The College-Wide Personnel and Budget Committee (P&B) is responsible for evaluating faculty appointments, reappointments, promotions, tenure, and leaves. Dr. Paul Arcario, Interim President of LaGuardia Community College, is the Chairperson of the P&B Committee. The College's Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Nireata Seals, and the ten Departmental Chairpersons also serve on the committee. The Executive Director of Human Resources and the Associate Director for Faculty & Staff Relations serve as non-voting members of the committee and are responsible for minutes.
The P&B Committee reviews documentation regarding each faculty member and then votes on each candidate by written and confidential ballot. The decision of the Committee serves as a recommendation to the President. P&B proceedings are private and confidential.

The “Academic Affairs Research/Creative Work Award” is designed to support the scholarly and creative work of sixth-year, tenure-track faculty.This award was instituted in AY2016-17 in response to faculty requests for such support that emerged from the COACHE survey and follow-up discussions.
Recipients receive 3 hours of released time for the academic year in which the award is granted. The number of awards per year depends upon available budget. Proposals are read “blindly” and ranked (using a rubric) by the academic chairpersons (they do not read proposals from their own departments). Awards are made in order of the ranking scores received.

[Note: SIRs from previous instructional staff titles (Instructor or Lecturer) should not be considered for faculty in their professorial titles]. Motion was approved.
