Roles and Responsibilities of NTT and PT Faculty

1.         Teaching Appointments

            The primary duty of full-time non-tenure-track (NTT) and part-time (PT) faculty is to provide credit instruction. Ideally, this teaching is of a high quality, similar to that of tenure-track Faculty. Full-time NTT faculty may hold the rank of Instructor, if they do not possess a terminal degree, or one of the professorial ranks (typically Assistant Professor), if they do possess an appropriate terminal degree (Ph.D. or D.B.A.). Part-time faculty may be appointed at the rank of Instructor. Appointment at the rank of Instructor requires a minimum of an M.B.A. or closely related Master’s degree, in combination with relevant business experience.

2.         Workload

Consistent with their Collective Bargaining Agreement, Article VIII.A, full-time NTT faculty are normally assigned fifteen (15) credit hours per semester, thirty (30) credit hours per academic year.  If workload equivalencies are utilized to reduce the credit hours assigned, tenure-track Faculty guidelines may be used, or criteria appropriate to the responsibilities and expected contributions of NTT faculty may be utilized. Part-time faculty are hired as needed, on a course-by-course basis, and are paid accordingly.
