18.0 II-1.10 - POLICY ON PART-TIME TENURE-TRACK AND PART-TIME TENURED FACULTY
(Approved by the Board of Regents, April 26, 1990)
An institution may employ tenure-track and tenured faculty
members on a part-time basis. In order to be considered
tenure-track or to be granted tenure, a part-time faculty
member's commitment shall be at least fifty percent time.
1. Each institution which employs part-time tenure-track and/or
part-time tenured faculty shall develop written procedures
for the appointment, promotion, and granting of tenure to
such faculty. Appointment, reappointment, tenure,
promotion, and termination of part-time tenure-track and
part-time tenured faculty members shall be consistent with
the policies and procedures established for permanent
full-time faculty members.
2. The length of the probationary period for tenure
consideration shall ordinarily be based upon the number of
full-time equivalent years accrued by the faculty member at
the institution in a tenure-track rank. Part-time
tenure-track and part-time tenured faculty are eligible for
full-time positions consistent with institutional policies.
3. Part-time tenure-track and part-time tenured faculty members
shall be entitled to participate in the institution's
benefit programs on a proportional basis or otherwise, as
permitted by those programs.
