Appointment to an academic title should reflect proportionately the department’s usual spectrum of responsibilities and qualifications for that title. A title modified by “adjunct,” “visiting” or “courtesy” may indicate a narrower focus of responsibilities, or usage may be consistent with traditions of the department or discipline.
Visiting fellow, visiting critic, visiting scholar and visiting scientist are approved academic titles. Descriptions are located in the Titles section of this manual.
In any particular appointment, only one modifier may be used with the academic title.
