Visiting Faculty

Visiting appointments are available at all ranks and are normally reserved for faculty coming on a short-term basis from other institutions or recent Ph.D. graduates under consideration for a tenure-track appointment.

Visitors are appointed for one year and can be reappointed for a second year. In rare circumstances, a third year may be approved, but this requires the consent of both the Dean’s Office and the Provost’s Office. For visiting positions, contact the appropriate divisional Associate Dean for approval of appointment.

The default teaching load for a visitor is 2:3. Any exceptions must be approved by the Dean’s Office.
