College of Medicine’s Policy on Visiting Faculty Appointments

“Visiting” may be used in the title of a faculty appointment when the individual is to be a temporary appointee of one year or less.  Such appointments may be renewed for a period generally not longer than three years when state-funded, and not longer than five years when the funding source is non-state.  Appointments beyond these timeframes imply permanent status and if they are to continue must be converted to permanent appointments in accordance with established campus policies.

Advanced rank new appointments (associate professor or professor in all tracks) require the development of a p&t dossier within the first year.   The recommendation then goes to the College promotions committee for review and to the Executive Dean for endorsement.  Tenured appointments require additional approvals at the University level.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Faculty Affairs.
