7.1.3 Joint Appointments and Affiliations

Approved by Academic Council, Administration

Joint appointments and affiliations are granted for the enrichment of academic programs.

A joint appointment is an appointment to two units of the University in which the faculty member is recognized to have full faculty status in those units with all the rights and responsibilities pertaining to such status (subject to the provisions relating to voting).

A faculty member in a unit may have an affiliation appointment to another unit. The faculty member has full rights and responsibilities in his or her primary unit and participates in the other program in a restricted, specialized, or temporary manner. The affiliation should not require the faculty member to regularly attend meetings or to participate in the full range of administrative and governance functions of that unit.
