Limitations on Appointment: This title is not benefits eligible. Affiliate Instructor appointments are normally given to an individual who holds a primary appointment with an outside agency or non-academic unit at the University.
Length of Appointment: Annual appointment with indefinite reappointments
Promotion for an affiliate appointment is not required. When a unit wishes to recommend promotion, the instructions and deadline dates for promotion to Associate Professor should be followed.
Affiliate appointments are annual and should be considered for reappointment each year by the faculty of the unit (or undepartmentalized college or school). Please contact your Dean/Chancellor’s Office for required documentation.
The documentation required to reappoint an Affiliate Instructor is a letter from the Chair/Director, with the Dean/Chancellor’s signed concurrence, including the term of the appointment, the faculty vote (votes for, against, abstaining, absent, and total number of eligible voters), reasons for the faculty decision, and the Chair/Director’s independent recommendation.
Emeritus Eligibility: No
When a faculty member decides to resign their Affiliate appointment, a resignation letter should be sent to AHR.
