Part-time faculty are appointed as needed by each unit and considered as less than full-time annual appointment as specified by each unit. Part-time is determined by the unit based on a comparison to year-long appointments. Time of service on a part-time appointment may not accrue to time for appointment with tenure.

Each faculty shall function under the Dean and Provost and be subjected to the policies of the University.
