2.5.7 Temporary Faculty Appointment and Reappointment

A full time temporary faculty appointment is primarily used for short term (one year or less) appointments when a unit needs to hire a faculty member and there is not sufficient time to conduct a search. A faculty member appointed as a full time temporary employee can be reappointed for a second year with approval of the chair, dean and provost.

At the end of the two year period of time or before, any faculty member who is employed in a temporary position must be either appointed as a regular faculty through a competitive search process, or terminated. If a temporary faculty member has been on the position for less than one year, then a three month notice of termination must be given if the position is to be terminated. Such appointment must follow guidelines described in this Handbook.
