Service Period: 3, 6, 9 or 12 months (1 or 2 months for summer quarter only)
Limitations on Appointment: Senior Lecturer is an instructional title that may be conferred on persons who have special instructional roles and who have extensive training, competence, and experience in their discipline (Faculty Code Section 24-34B).
Length of Appointment: May be on an annual or multiple year (1-5 years) part-time basis (minimum 50% FTE), or quarter-by-quarter up to 100%. Part-time appointment as senior lecturer is for the period stated in the letter of appointment. (Faculty Code Section 24-41B).
Pursuant to the Provost’s Guidelines for the Appointment of Full-time Lecturers (September 2016), if appointed on or after September 16, 2016, and appointment renewal on a quarter to quarter basis leads to the equivalent of an annual appointment at 50% or greater, reappointment on a quarter to quarter basis is limited to three consecutive years. Thereafter, reappointment must be on an annual or multiple-year basis.
A faculty member has a professional obligation to give a written notice of resignation at the earliest possible opportunity. Normally such resignations should be given at least three months prior to the termination date, or within 15 days of notification of terms of a reappointment, whichever occurs later, and should ordinarily become effective at the end of an academic year (Faculty Code Section 24-56 A).
