The Office of Faculty Affairs at WCM-Q (QOFA) manages the process of appointment, reappointment, and promotion of all faculty, including those at Cornell affiliated institutions, and of all non-faculty academic staff. It works closely with the relevant offices in New York and Ithaca to ensure that the appropriate Weill Cornell Medical College and/or Cornell University policies, procedures and guidelines are followed.
QOFA staff support the search committees and principal investigators in the preparation and posting of advertisements and handling of applications, and provides candidates offered appointment with detailed guidelines for CV development and preparation of materials for their academic appointments. For appointed faculty, the Office provides guidance in the preparation of faculty dossiers for re-appointment and promotion and supports the annual review process for the forthcoming year, and is available to respond to academic staff members' questions and concerns about their academic appointments. It reviews all recommendations and credentials for appropriateness before processing, and ensures that appointment and promotion dossiers are submitted to the academic departments in New York and Ithaca ready for formal review.
As part of its information systems management, the Office is responsible for a variety of reports needed to monitor the status of the academic staff and responds to requests for data from internal divisions and external entities
