Affiliate Faculty and Staff Onboarding
Welcome Affiliate Faculty! Please read below and complete the forms to process your status.
Affiliate appointments are intended to recognize professional contributions to the University by an individual whose principal employment lies outside the University. Affiliate appointments require the same qualifications as those required for faculty appointment to the corresponding rank. Affiliate appointments are not benefit eligible and are limited for a maximum of one year. Affiliate appointments are recommended by the appropriate academic departments and approved by the dean and appointed rank by the president as affiliate assistant professor, affiliate associate professor, or affiliate professor, depending upon the qualifications of the appointees. Affiliate faculty must go through an abbreviated process with HR before being cleared for assignment. This includes a background check, appropriate licensure verification, CV review, and references.
