In the spring of 2004, revisions to the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences' Constitution called for the establishment of a standing Non-Tenure-Line Faculty Advisory Committee. This committee provides avenues for the fixed-term and research faculty to serve as a group in discharging the aims and objectives of the college, and to submit proposed actions through appropriate channels to the college and University administration.
In short, the Non-Tenure-Line Faculty Advisory Committee serves as the primary fixed-term and research faculty liaison to the dean. The Non-Tenure-Line Faculty Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from each academic department, institute and alliance in the college. Committee members serve three-year terms that are staggered to ensure institutional continuity.
Non-Tenure-Line (NTL) faculty augment the extent and range of activities performed by tenured faculty. NTL faculty currently make up a significant percentage of the total faculty in the college, are found within each unit, and perform a wide variety of functions. Each NTL faculty has their own responsibilities unique to their job description. Some NTL faculty focus entirely on conducting research, others on teaching or administration. Many are involved in a mixture of these responsibility areas, and these responsibilities may change over time. In general, NTL faculty's duties and responsibilities target specific categories as determined by their funding source.
The Non-Tenure-Line Faculty Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from each academic department, institute and alliance in EMS. Committee members serve three-year terms that are staggered to ensure institutional continuity.
