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.

Please note that faculty who are being proposed for advanced rank status (associate professor or professor) in all tracks, both tenure and non-tenure, should undergo review by the appropriate college committees within their first year.


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