General Information

The procedures followed at the East Liverpool Campus regarding appointment of new faculty follow established Kent State University policies, including adherence to the Affirmative Action policy and procedures. Each appointment must take place within the context of the University's commitment to equal opportunity.

The responsibilities of faculty at Kent State University at East Liverpool are the same as those at every other campus of Kent State University. These are the scholarship of teaching as well as scholarly research and creative activity, and University and community citizenship responsibilities. However, because of regional campuses’ distinctive mission, more emphasis is placed on the act of teaching than is the case at the Kent Campus.

Appointment of a faculty member at Kent State University at East Liverpool is complicated by the fact that, while faculty are full members of a Kent Campus academic department, their tenure and teaching assignments are in the Regional Campuses, and these campuses are budgeted separately from the Kent Campus. Faculty assigned to Kent State University at East Liverpool may have teaching assignments at East Liverpool, Salem, or both.  Assignments to campuses other than East Liverpool or Salem must follow the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Detailed information on regulations regarding appointment and employment can be found in the University Policy Register.
