Renewal of Multiple-Year Appointments

Faculty and academic professionals on multiple-year (MY) appointment may be renewed conditional upon satisfactory job performance, the continued availability of funds, and the needs of the academic unit and the university. Faculty and academic professionals on MY appointments are reviewed for renewal in the second year of their three-year appointment. If successful, they will be granted three additional, consecutive one-year appointments, effective at the end of their current three-year appointment.

Renewal of Annual Appointments

Faculty and academic professionals on annual (year-to-year) appointment may be renewed conditional upon satisfactory job performance, the continued availability of funds and the needs of the academic unit and the university. Dean’s approval is required for renewal of fixed-term faculty or academic professional appointments. Normally, the renewal process coincides with the end of the academic and fiscal years.

Promotion

Consistent with ACD506-05, individuals with fixed-term faculty appointments as lecturer, clinical faculty and research faculty are eligible for promotion in rank. Instructors, faculty research associates, and faculty associates are not eligible for promotion. Fixed-term faculty members are promoted based on excellence in the specific area(s) of assignment. This excellence is achieved in the context of the program in which faculty members work. Promotion cases are reviewed at the unit, school and university levels. Fixed-term faculty interested in seeking promotion should refer to the Fixed-Term Faculty Promotion Process Guide.
