Role of Non-Tenure Track Faculty Members in Departmental Governance

The role of Full-time Non-tenure-track (NTT) faculty in the governance of the Department is regulated by the Collective Bargaining Agreement of this group. It is the policy of the Department to afford NTT faculty an appropriate voice in the affairs of the Department. Accordingly, given their limited numbers on the Kent and Regional Campuses, NTT faculty appointed to teach a foreign language on any campus shall have an equal opportunity to represent that group on Standing Departmental committees and appropriate ad hoc committees. These representatives shall be chosen jointly by all NTT faculty regardless of the campus on which they have appointment; they shall have full voice and vote on all matters except those restricted by the respective collective bargaining agreements.
