Clinical/Adjunct "Prefix" Faculty

Faculty in the Clinical/Adjunct appointment system with a "prefix" rank (e.g., Clinical Assistant Professor, Adjunct Assistant Professor, etc.) are usually not paid by the University. Their primary responsibility and income may be in another department of the university or may be outside the university. Appointments are usually made on an "adjunct" basis unless the appointee holds a professional medical degree, in which case a "clinical" appointment is used. Reappointment and promotion is at the discretion of the department and college. Successive reappointments do not confer tenure or other continuing employment status.

PROMOTION GUIDELINES

Promotion criteria for "prefix" faculty are based on the Guidelines for Clinical/Adjunct Prefix Appointments and Promotions.

REVIEW PROCESS

Reappointment and promotion for faculty in this appointment system is handled through the Mass Update Process. For information regarding the Mass Update Process contact Toya Pruitt, CHM Human Resources Manager, at toya.pruitt@hc.msu.edu.
