September 7, 1995

To: SJSU Managers and Supervisors
From: Robert L. Caret, President
Subject: "Chain of Command"

This memorandum supersedes all previous notices on this subject. It is not intended to alter the normal responsibilities of any of the administrators indicated, nor should it be so interpreted.

As you know, it may become necessary for another officer of the University to act for me when I am away from the campus. This, then, will serve as the official delegation of both authority and responsibility to the following administrators to make decisions on behalf of the President in emergency situations when I am not available. The "Chain of Command" is as follows:

  1. President
  2. Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
  3. Vice President for Administration
  4. Vice President for Student Affairs (Acting)
