A. New Faculty Positions

New faculty positions are allocated to the University based on enrollment growth from the previous year. These new faculty positions are allocated to the colleges by the Provost in response to annual proposals prepared by the Deans. At the time of the allocation, each position is designated as within one of four categories:

Tenure-Track Faculty Positions include positions at the professional ranks (assistant professor, associate professor, and professor) and instructor as described in Section 3 of the Tenure Document.

Non-Tenure Track Positions are special faculty positions dedicated to support faculty members or instructional support personnel employed in 1310 positions to meet permanent instructional needs of a college.

Graduate Assistant Position funds are allocated by the Graduate School Dean.
