  UNIVERSITY POLICY STATEMENT

It is the policy of the University to employ part-time or temporary faculty (Lecturers) for limited terms to supplement its work force of regular tenure-track and tenured faculty. Offers of employment do not become effective until the Board of Regents approves the appointment.

 

UNIVERSITY PRACTICE

The Provost makes final recommendations to the Board of Regents for all temporary lecturer appointments. All employing departments are responsible for properly informing any "new employee," whom they wish to bring into the job prior to the Board of Regents' approval, that such employment is on a temporary basis and is subject to the final approval of the Board.

  1. University practices for implementing this policy include:
  2. Temporary appointments are made to supplement the regular faculty workforce.
  3. Such appointees, in whatever department, shall be assigned the rank of lecturer.
  4. Service as a lecturer does not apply towards tenure, promotion in rank, or similar faculty benefits.
  5. Whether part-time or full-time, an appointment as a lecturer is for a stated period and carries no institutional obligation, expressed or implied, beyond the terms of the appointment.
  6. Salary scales for lecturers are based on need and department allocations.

2.     Lecturers and other non-tenure-track academic employees, appointed less than full-time (100%) for less than the equivalent of one full academic year (fall-winter), shall be eligible for the benefits listed under #1 above: b, c, and d.
