LSA New Faculty Furniture Guidelines

The College provides a standard furniture package to its newly hired "regular" faculty. "Regular" faculty positions are those that have received formal approval from the College Executive Committee and carry the titles Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, or Lecturer III. The standard package includes:

  • One desk (double pedestal or desk and return)
  • One computer table (with or without keyboard tray)
  • One desk chair
  • One side chair
  • Two 4-drawer vertical file cabinets
  • Four bookcases

Consideration will be given to needs not met by the College's standard package.
