The information here is designed to guide you through the faculty appointment process, whether you’re appointing a new faculty member, or changing an existing faculty member’s appointment.
For the purposes of this website, “Faculty” includes both members and non-members of the Faculty Association, Librarians and Program Directors in Continuing Studies.
To ensure that the appointment process goes smoothly, it’s important that the necessary forms are complete, and the information included is accurate.
Once the recruiting process for your new faculty member is complete, it’s time to process the appointment.
All new appointments and reappointments are processed on a Faculty Appointment Form, except for Sessional Lecturer appointments and reappointments which are processed using the Integrated Sessional Information System (ISIS).
Please review the documentation checklist to ensure that you are supplying all necessary paperwork to complete the appointment process.
We’ve also provided the following links to additional information that you will need to complete the forms properly.
