Non-Primary Faculty Appointments
The above guidelines only apply to appointments and promotions in the Department in which full time and part time/voluntary faculty hold their primary appointment.
The following pertains to the appointment, reappointment and promotion of full time and part time/voluntary faculty to a Department(s) other than the one in which the faculty member holds a primary appointment. Non-primary appointments, reappointments and promotions to the rank of Assistant Professor is at the discretion of the Chairperson of the non-primary Department, subject to the endorsement by the Chairperson of the primary Department.
Non-primary appointments, reappointments, and promotions to the rank of Associate Professor and Professor will be made upon the recommendation of the Chairperson of the non-primary Department, endorsement by the Chairperson of the primary Department, and subsequent review and approval by the Committee on Appointments and Promotions. All non-primary appointments and reappointments will be for a term of one year, without limitation on the number of reappointments, unless otherwise requested by the Chairperson of the Department in which the non-primary appointment will be held. At the end of each term the Chairperson of the non- primary Department may recommend reappointment or promotion, or not reappoint the individual to that Department. For those faculty who hold one year appointments, the faculty member must be given a minimum of six months written notice of non-reappointment to the non-primary Department. For those with three or five year appointments, the faculty member must be given a minimum of twelve months written notice of non-reappointment to the non- primary Department. In the event that a primary appointment terminates for any reason, any non-primary appointment(s) will automatically terminate simultaneously with the primary appointment.
