Lecturer Faculty

  • Temporary Part-Time Lecturer--faculty who are hired for temporary part-time positions on a semester basis or for the full academic year.
  • Temporary Full-Time Lecturer--faculty who are hired for temporary full-time positions on a semester basis or for the full academic year. Appointments for a full year may be renewed once. Therefore, faculty may serve two years, at most, in temporary full-time lecturer positions.
  • Regular Full-Time Lecturer--faculty who are engaged to teach classes full-time, usually on a yearly basis, and who receive letters of appointment for one year. These appointments may be renewed up to five times. Therefore, regular full-time lecturers may serve six years, at most, in these positions. During the sixth year, the Department must decide whether to recommend the faculty member to become a Senior Lecturer.
