Teaching Professor Ranks
Nominations are open for all ranks of the new teaching professor career path. These ranks, including assistant teaching professor, associate teaching professor, and (full) teaching professor, are intended to provide a career path and professional development for long-term non-tenure track faculty with opportunities for advancement whenever possible. In addition to maintaining a record of consistently excellent teaching, teaching professors will be expected to advise students, to actively engage in pedagogical development and to mentor others, to perform service such as on committees or participation in faculty governance. Lecturers, instructors, and other similar appointments will continue to fulfill a vital role to the academic enterprise, providing quality teaching with a maximum of flexibility.
