Appointment and Promotion
Section UCD-280, Adjunct Professor Series
Date: 10/1/99, reissued 12/19/06, 6/29/11
a. The departmental and the dean's letters of appointment must stipulate the assignment of duties and responsibilities. Evaluation and subsequent reviews of the candidate shall be based upon the candidate's specific assignment and be consistent with Section APM-280.
b. Appointment to this title requires a meaningful and regular participation in teaching--either in formal courses or in formal guidance of graduate students. (For this reason, Academic Senate review of these non Senate appointees is necessary; see Section APM-280-82.) However, an appointment that includes a primary responsibility in teaching should be made to the Lecturer series, and an appointment that includes a primary responsibility in research with no regular teaching should be made to the Professional Research series (see Section APM-280-16).
c. For appointment to this title series, flexibility is expected to be exercised in judging the character of research and creative work. For professional practitioners, professional competence and activity may be used as review criteria in lieu of research and creative work.
a. All appointments to this series, regardless of rank, must carry a specific ending date. Assistant Adjunct Professors are limited by the eight-year rule (see Section APM-280-16-c). Other ranks may be reappointed.
