200.040 – FACULTY APPOINTMENT, EVALUATION & ADVANCEMENT
Date Revised: March 2020
The MFA Steering Committee appoints Core Faculty for the MFA Program. The President and the Provost ultimately appoint curricular faculty for the PC programs. Search Committees refer prospective curricular faculty to the President and the Provost. Search Committees are ad hoc committees that generally include current curricular faculty in all disciplines. In making recommendations, Search Committees consider a number of factors including prior teaching experience, exhibitions and publications and creative work. Searches for curricular faculty are national in scope.
The Provost hires adjunct faculty based on requests and recommendations from Program Chairs. In all instances, hiring decisions are made in the interest of promoting the mission, goals and objectives of the program and the College at large. Curricular and adjunct faculty members receive Letters of Appointment.
