Visiting Appointments

Visiting appointments are understood to be terminal when made; they may be for varying lengths of time dependent upon the particular circumstances. The terms of a terminal appointment will be made explicit in writing at the time of appointment. In cases where an appointment has been made to a position announced on an explicitly temporary or special basis and is therefore a terminal appointment, and a decision is made to create a regular position in the same discipline or department, the person who holds the temporary appointment may be a candidate for the regular position, but only as one applicant in a regular applicant pool. The College is committed to public notification of vacancies for visiting appointments and to a search for the best available candidates within affirmative action guidelines.
