Affiliate Faculty

Affiliate faculty are a special category of faculty identified by the President upon recommendation of the appropriate department chair and dean.  The title would apply to a person whose employment is with an organization that is associated with the university by contract or to a person who is a practicing professional or independent scholar associated with the university for specific research purposes.  Affiliate faculty may be given a title containing an academic rank provided the additional title of "affiliate" precedes the designation of rank.  Such appointment has no significance for the achieving or holding of tenure.
