Appointment and Renewal of Appointment of FTNTT faculty

Appointments for full‐time non‐tenure track (FTNTT) faculty are governed by the applicable CBA and are made annually. FTNTT appointments are at the rank of Lecturer, Associate Lecturer, and Senior Lecturer, without a terminal degree, and at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor, with a terminal degree.  In addition, FTNTT faculty members may be appointed in either the Instructional or Research track.

Renewal of appointment is contingent upon programmatic need, satisfactory performance of previously assigned responsibilities, and budgeted resources to support the position.  FTNTT appointments are not included under the umbrella of the University policy and procedures regarding faculty tenure (See, University Policy Register 6‐14) and FTNTT faculty members are not entitled to any rights with regard to tenure.
