Joint Appointments (Article 24)
A joint appointment is an appointment with a Primary and Secondary Department or Faculty. When a faculty member has a joint appointment, both departments and/or faculties will participate in decisions affecting the faculty member.
Modified Appointments (Article 25)
Where a member wishes to reduce the overall level of their appointment, the University recognizes that it would benefit from a carefully considered modification of an appointment through enhancement of staffing flexibility.
Faculty members must be in a continuing/tenure role, having passed probation or achieved tenure, to request this modification. Apply using the Modification of Appointment Application Form.
NOTE: there is no presumption of a member's entitlement to have this request granted.
Part-time Appointments (Article 26)
A part-time faculty member is one who performs the duties and responsibilities of a fulltime faculty member, but with a reduced load.
In some instances, a part-time faculty appointment may involve a potentially conflicting obligation to another employer. Therefore, where a person who holds a full-time appointment with another employer is considered for appointment as a part-time faculty member, the consent of the other employer may be required.
