Career and Specialty Faculty

Career and specialty faculty with multi-term contracts, primarily focused on instructional responsibilities, have various titles: multi-term lecturers, professors of the practice, and teaching professors. Appointments are usually 2-3 years, and a comprehensive performance review is required before renewal of an appointment or promotion. The forms linked below provide instructions for completing both the faculty member report and the unit-level evaluation. The electronic submission link provides units with instructions on how to submit the materials electronically for review and processing by the Provost office and HR.
