  3. The Department Chair shall indicate approval by signing and dating the form and forwarding it to the Dean.
  4. The Department Chair can deny the request by checking the "Request Denied" box and entering a reason in the space provided. The Department Chair shall then sign and date the form. The form is returned to the initiating faculty member.
  5. The Dean shall indicate approval by signing and dating the form. Copies are returned to the Department Chair and the initiating faculty member.
