2.27 Instructors

Appropriate University officers are authorized to make initial appointments to the rank of assistant professor, contingent upon the completion of doctoral requirements (or any other terminal degree appropriate to the field of appointment). The appointee holds the rank of lecturer or instructor in the interim. Appointees who complete the requirements within a reasonable time after their appointment will not normally be presented for promotion review before receiving the rank of assistant professor.
