The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) negotiated in January of 2014 for non-tenure track faculty included provisions related to new titles series and promotion pathways, understandings with regard to the timing of evaluations, and development of criteria for evaluation. In addition, the agreement required that the University and the Union collaborate on the development of policies and procedures related to reappointment and promotion evaluations.  As a result of this work the Short Form policy which governs reviews of all NTT reappointments and promotions up to the rank of Assistant Professor was developed.   Also developed were new procedures for promotions at the rank of Associate and above -- the “Academic Promotion Instructions for Non-Tenure Track Faculty." There are two versions of these Instructions, one for non-library faculty and one for library faculty.

In anticipation of questions and concerns related to these new procedures (and a period of adjustment as units put into place the structure for these new procedures), we’ve developed a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):


The new NTT procedures and ongoing efforts to strengthen and improve the professional working conditions of NTTs would not be possible without the support of our members.  We thank all the full members and encourage those who are not yet members to join.

In Unity,

Lisa Klein, President
