Non-Tenurable Faculty Appointments
[The following was approved on May 23, 1996, in accordance with provisions set forth in SIU Board of Trustees 2 Policies B and C.1.c.]
The following policy will be followed when appointing a faculty member to a full-time non-tenurable position. All appointments will be on a term basis.
- Appointments on funds generated from cost-recovery programs, or appointments on a grant or contract in a basic academic unit. Such appointments will be limited to faculty ranks that are non-tenurable and non-tenure accruing. Reappointments may be renewed for the duration of the activity.
- Appointments to lines funded from regular state-appropriated funds. Such appointments will be limited to the ranks of assistant instructor or lecturer. Individuals appointed to such ranks must have the appropriate terminal degree. Reappointment will be considered for a maximum of up to 5 consecutive years of employment, including, where applicable, the year spent in an appointment with a contingency statement. Individuals holding non-tenurable appointments are not eligible for promotion to a tenurable rank nor for transfer to a continuing line.
- Appointments of professionals on leave from institutions such as other universities, government agencies, private industry, etc., to lines funded from regular state-appropriated funds. The nature of the assignment may vary depending on the needs of the academic unit. Such appointments will be made at the appropriate visiting professorial rank as determined by the qualifications of the individual. Reappointments may be made for a maximum of one year.
