Renewal of Appointment for Non-tenure-track Faculty at Any Campus

The overall evaluation of a candidate for renewal of appointment in the Department must include consideration of the individual’s personal integrity and professional behavior as recognized by the University community. A sound, ethical approach to all aspects of teaching, university citizenship, and the academic profession are expected of all who seek renewal of appointment.

University policy and procedures regarding renewals of appointment are contained in the UPR and the CBA. These policies are supplemented each academic year by a document provided by the Provost’s Office. Each year, the Department Chair will distribute the Provost’s schedule noting the timeline for submission of documents for renewal of appointment to each faculty member in the Department. Judgments based on sex, race, color, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or political activity or other legally-protected categories are expressly forbidden.

The criteria for renewals of appointment can be found in the most recent Non-tenure-track Collective Bargaining Agreement.
