Visiting Faculty Appointments

Visiting Faculty appointments at an appropriate faculty rank may be made when leaves of absence occur or special needs arise and funds are available.  A visiting faculty member is typically a faculty member from another institution who is employed by the Department for a period not to exceed one (1) year.  In the event that a Visiting Faculty member is employed in that capacity for a second consecutive year, the Visiting Faculty member will then become a full-time non-tenure track (NTT) Faculty member.  Visiting Faculty members do not vote on Department Committees and do not participate in Department governance.  Visiting Faculty may engage in research laboratory work only when sponsored by a regular Faculty member.
