Renewal of Appointment and Third-Year Full Performance Reviews of Full-Time Non-Tenure Track (NTT) Faculty

  1. Renewal of Appointment

    Appointments for full-time non-tenure track (NTT) faculty are governed by the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement and are made annually. Renewal of appointment is contingent upon programmatic need, satisfactory performance of previously assigned responsibilities, and budgeted resources to support the position.

  2. Third-Year Full Performance Review

    The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for the non-tenure track faculty (NTT), provides for a Full Performance Review of full-time NTT faculty who are in their third year and the sixth year of consecutive employment. In keeping with the Full designation, this review requires that each faculty member submit a file, the contents of which are described in Addendum B to the CBA. The CBA also provides for a “simplified” Performance Review for faculty who are in their ninth year of consecutive employment or in the third year of a three-year term of annual appointment beyond the ninth year. This “simplified” Performance Review requires submission of the documents described in the relevant section of the CBA.
