(Long Title) Proposed Revision of Faculty Handbook to Approve Promotions from Extra-Collegiate Instructor in the Library to the Rank of Assistant Professor

Recommended by the Commission on Faculty Affairs
Approved by University Council: May 3, 1993
Approved by the President: May 3, 1993
Approved by the Board of Visitors: August 30, 1993
Effective: Immediately

The University Council, on recommendation of the Commission on Faculty Affairs, approved the Resolution 1992-93E, Proposed Revision of the Faculty Handbook to Approve of Promotions from Extra-Collegiate Instructor in the Library to the Rank of Assistant Professor.

Following is the text of the resolution as adopted by University Council.

WHEREAS, it is more efficient that recommendations for promotion in rank from instructor to assistant professor be reviewed, for recommendation to the President, within the University Libraries, rather than by the University Promotion and Continued Appointment Committee for Extra-Collegiate Faculty, and;

WHEREAS, this procedural change would more closely parallel current procedures for Extension faculty so that a recommendation for promotion to assistant professor by the Director of University Libraries is forwarded for approval to the Vice President for Information Systems, the Provost, President and Board of Visitors;

WHEREAS, the University Promotion and Continued Appointment Committee for Extra-Collegiate Faculty and the Provost's Office agree that it is reasonable to make this procedural change,

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Faculty Handbook be amended to provide for administrative approval of promotions from Extra-Collegiate Instructor in the Library to the rank of Assistant Professor.

The text of the approval of promotions from extra-collegiate instructor in the library to the rank of assistant professor will be incorporated in the Faculty Handbook.
