The Senate Committee on Appointment and Promotions has empowered appropriate University officers to appoint as acting assistant professors individuals currently in the instructor rank at Syracuse University who complete their doctoral requirements after the final report on promotions has been made to the Senate. It is understood that such individuals will be presented in the regular manner for promotion review the following year.
Appropriate University officers are authorized to make initial appointments to the rank of assistant professor, contingent upon the completion of doctoral requirements. 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.
Approved by the Senate, November 2005
