Appointments may be temporary, probationary, or tenured. At the time of initial appointment, faculty members receive a tenure-track appointment form (or letter of appointment for temporary faculty) that lists beginning and ending dates of the initial appointment, classification, salary, rank, time base, teaching load, assigned department or equivalent unit, and special conditions. The appointment form/letter should be read carefully. Any questions should be brought immediately to the attention of the department chair.
