Resolution 111: Proposal for Implementation of Use of Professor of Practice Title by College of Agriculture & Life Sciences

Term 2015-2016
Senate University Faculty Senate
Status Adopted 9/2/15
Abstract The current range of available academic titles does not meet the needs of various Colleges at Cornell that stand to benefit considerably from the creation of a new, primarily single-function, non-tenure-track Professor title. These Colleges are currently experiencing difficulty both in recruiting and retaining faculty members who might bear such a title since, unlike many of their peer institutions, they have only the title of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer available. In addition, there are currently individuals in Lecturer positions who are, in effect, carrying out the functions of Professors of Practice
