Part-time Instructional Faculty
Final Approval Authority
Provost: Part time instructional faculty appointments and reappointments
Paperwork Required for Provost Review
The Office of the Provost must approve all part-‐time faculty appointments for classroom teachers during the academic year and for the Summer Term. This includes part-‐time: Lecturers, professorial faculty with modified titles (Adjunct, Research, Clinical, and of the Practice), as well as Emeritus faculty re-‐hired on a part-‐time basis to teach. It does not include part-‐time Visiting faculty.
Current Graduate Students, Staff and Full-‐time Faculty: Provost approval is required for appointment of graduate students and staff who will serve as the instructor of record and will be paid specifically for that part-‐time teaching, whether or not they receive an additional title. Approval is not required for a current graduate student who will be serving as a Teaching Fellow or for a full-‐time faculty member who will be paid an overbase to teach an extra course. Note that graduate students who already receive full financial support are generally ineligible to be paid overbase for additional teaching.
On-‐line Teaching: Faculty who teach exclusively on-‐line, or who serve as on-‐line facilitators, are currently excluded from the review process. If the course is “blended,” with a face-‐to face component, then it falls under classroom teaching and the part-‐time faculty appointment must be approved by the Provost. Please check with Steve Marois in the Office of the Provost if you have any questions about the populations that need to be approved.
Checklists and CVs: Please address each item on the checklist and include a current CV. If an item is not applicable, please note this; do not leave the field blank.
Approval Process: The Office of the Provost approves part-‐time appointments and reappointments on a rolling basis. Our goal is to provide approval within a few days. Please help us by sending in the checklists as they are completed rather than waiting until you have several hundred. We recognize that there will always be a few last minute appointments, but please do not hold a batch of completed checklists for weeks while you wait for stragglers. Send us the stragglers later. Thank you!
Checklists and CVs should be submitted electronically to Lisa Celmer (firstname.lastname@example.org, 1 Silber Way – 8th Floor). You may contact her at 8-1683 with any questions or to check the status of paperwork.
