Confidential faculty interviews – If faculty meetings are in groups, time must be set aside for individuals who ask to meet confidentially with reviewers. Individuals contact Becca Tritten in the Dean’s Office to request these meetings (rebecca-tritten@uiowa.edu). Typically, these individual meetings are for about 10 minutes with one or more reviewers.
