Key:  F=first-year review; A=annual review for reappointment (after the first year); M=multi-year review for reappointment; O=ongoing assessment.

Notes:

  • Ongoing Assessment: In years where there is no scheduled first-year review or review for reappointment, departments will assess teaching and performance on an at least annual basis and provide feedback to the lecturer or preceptor, following departmental protocols.
  • All reviews should be completed by March 15 (for those appointed on July 1).
  • Ordinarily, multi-year appointments for lecturers and preceptors begin on July 1.
  • All lecturers and preceptors must undergo a first-year review to be eligible to teach in the following academic year.
  • Non-dependent lecturers and preceptors must adhere to the FAS eight-year rule, unless they are lecturers holding annual appointments on or after July 1, 2010, who have not accumulated 3.0 annual lecturer FTEs within eight years. In these circumstances, lecturers who have reached the eight-year limit may be appointed at the equivalent of up to one four-credit course per year, under the appropriate conditions, until they have accumulated 3.0 annual lecturer FTEs. Note: This allowed accrual of 3.0 annual lecturer FTEs beyond the original eight years of service is intended to support FAS curricular needs and is not intended as a general endorsement of long-term affiliation with the FAS beyond what is ordinarily eight years for term-limited appointments.
