CALS guidelines for new research and teaching professor titles for academic staff

In January 2021, the university created the teaching professor and research professor title series. These titles are non-tenure track professor titles that are academic staff appointments.

CALS has created its own guidelines to align with campus guidance which has been approved by the provost. The new titles better reflect employee contribution to the university.

Departments and centers will need to create and seek approval for unit-specific guidelines before employees can be appointed to or promoted within these titles. Department chairs and center directors will receive information on next steps later this week.
