Appointment and Promotion of Clinical, Professional, Practice, and Research Faculty:
Requirements for appointment to and promotion within clinical/professional practice/research positions will be determined by the individual colleges/units, and should be developed in accordance with appropriate BOT rules, the BOT-UFF Collective Bargaining Agreement, appropriate policies, and the University's Tenure and Promotion Manual. Each college/unit making clinical/professional practice/research appointments must develop appointment and promotion guidelines through a college/unit faculty committee. The guidelines must be approved by the college/unit faculty governance body, the dean, and the Faculty Senate prior to final approval by the Provost. Approved guidelines will be appended to the College/School's Tenure and Promotion Manual.
All clinical, professional practice, research and College of Medicine Non-tenure track promotion applications remain paper-based at this time. Please use the appropriate forms, available below and submit the completed binder to the Office of the Provost by December 11, 2017.

We are committed to establishing a transparent and consultative process. With these Guidelines, the Office of the Provost advances the principle of shared faculty governance.
