Change of Title/Change of Status

The Change of Title/Change of Status form is to be used for faculty who are recommended for:

  • A rank change: Use the form for a rank changes such as a change from a full-time to a part-time rank (ie. PROF to AJPROF). Promotion actions for faculty with clinical and of the practice ranks will also be submitted on this form. Often, a “change of title” also results in a “change of status.” Thus, it would not be unusual for both changes to be indicated.
  • A change of status: A typical change of status would be a change in a faculty member’s percent time. A change in tenure track status (i.e., from a non-tenure track to a tenure-track appointment) might require initial appointment paperwork.

Please Note: For promotions dealing with ranks no longer requiring Provost approval, rank change paperwork must still be submitted to the Provost office for review of salary changes. All full-time faculty increase recommendations should also be made in the context of the Faculty Salary Review Process.
