Faculty Ranks

            The minimum qualifications for tenure-track Faculty ranks are specified in the Collective Bargaining Agreement in Addendum A, Section B.1. In addition, Faculty ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor require a terminal degree (i.e. either Ph.D. or D.B.A.) in an appropriate field of study. Full-time non-tenure-track faculty may hold the rank of Instructor (NTT) with minimum qualifications including an MBA degree and relevant work experience.
