Initial Faculty Appointment

Preparing the Initial Faculty Appointment Packet
Once the Recruitment Phase has been completed and Credentialing has been initiated, it is time to assemble the Initial Faculty Appointment Packet. Use the Appointment Packet Checklist to gather the packet items and send to Faculty Affairs. Faculty Affairs will prepare the appointment letter and route the packet to the Dean, VP, Provost and President for approval.

Appointment Approval
Upon the Provost’s approval, the appointment packet is routed back to Faculty Affairs. The appointment letter is distributed to the faculty member, hiring department, and HRS. When the appointment letter is received in HRS, it will be matched to the ePAR and the faculty member’s information will be entered in to the EIS payroll system.

Staff to Faculty Appointment
There are instances when an employee is working as a Post-doc or a Research Scientist and the department chair would like to move them in to a faculty position such as a Research Assistant Professor.  Please use the Staff to Faculty Appointment Checklist to process the appointment.
