Faculty in non-tenure-track (NTT) roles are vital to the campus’s research, teaching, and service missions.
NTT faculty primarily devote their expertise to one or two of those missions:
- Lecturers, senior lecturers, and teaching professors focus on excellent teaching.
- Professors of practice enhance the teaching mission by devoting their expertise to instruction, student development, and placement.
- Faculty in the clinical ranks combine teaching and service in clinical and professional settings.
- Research scientists/scholars and research associates focus on research and creative activity.
- Academic specialists spearhead administrative services for academic programs.
