Lecturer Promotion Guidelines
According to the Faculty Handbook, “initial non-tenure-track teaching appointments will be made at the rank of lecturer for a definite term of one year or less.” A lecturer is eligible for promotion to senior lecturer typically after a minimum of five years of regular (full-time) service at the rank of lecturer. A senior lecturer is eligible for promotion to distinguished lecturer typically after three to five years of regular (full-time) service at the rank of senior lecturer. In addition to a change in title, promotion in rank may be recognized by a base salary adjustment. Promotion in rank may also include the offer of a three or five-year term appointment.
The purpose of this document is to establish expectations for performance, to make explicit the criteria and process for promotion, and to offer guidance to NTTF and departments regarding the assembly of a promotion dossier.
