Academic Regalia
GW Faculty must wear academic regalia to participate in convocation/commencement ceremonies. Caps, gowns and hoods may be purchased through a variety of online vendors. Full-time faculty may submit original receipts for a one-time reimbursement up to $200 toward the cost of purchasing a cap and gown. Original receipts should be submitted to the Office of University Events, Rice Hall, 504. Faculty preferring to rent academic regalia may make arrangements through the GWU University Bookstore.

Annual Appointment Letters
Most regular and research Milken Institute School of Public Health faculty members are on 12-month appointments extending from July 1st to June 30th; these faculty receive annual appointment letters in June. These letters indicate the faculty title and total salary, and also describe Part A, B, and C salary components. The Part A salary component reflects your contribution to the Department and the School as a member of the faculty, including teaching, departmental research, and community activities. The Part B salary component reflects the minimum amount of sponsored research you are expected to secure during the upcoming year. The Part C salary component is for individuals with administrative appointments, such as chairs or deans.

Limited service faculty (LSF) may receive annual appointments, course by course appointments, or both, as follows:

Individuals engaged with Milken Institute School of Public Health activities on an ongoing basis typically receive a fiscal or academic year LSF appointment;

Individuals who are paid to teach on a course-by-course basis receive a semester-by-semester appointment that outlines teaching responsibilities and compensation;

LSF with annual appointments who are ALSO paid to teach on a course-by-course basis will receive an additional letter in the semester they are teaching, outlining their responsibilities and compensation.

Reappointment letters are issued according to the term of the appointment.
