Initial Joint Without Salary Appointments – Update on Approval Authority

Dear Deans,

An individual appointed to a faculty title may be invited to hold a joint without salary appointment in another department. Such appointments, while easily renewable, are made on a year-to-year basis. The home department may wish to solicit input from the affiliated department prior to making personnel recommendations.

In an effort to streamline Academic Personnel processes, I am delegating authority to the deans to approve initial joint without salary appointments. This change will take effect July 1, 2022.

In preparing the joint without salary appointment, it is the responsibility of the chair of the department proposing the initial joint appointment to coordinate the process.

The file must include:

  1. Letter from the joint department with faculty vote
    • Signed and endorsed by the dean and chair of the home department
  2. Current CV
  3. Approved joint without salary appointment letter (sample letter)

The dean of the joint department will have authority to approve the initial joint without salary appointment and reappointments.

Within 30 days of approval, the original file should be forwarded to the Office of Academic Personnel, which will remain the office of record for these actions. Should you have any questions, please contact your assigned Academic Personnel analyst.

Thank you,

Diane K. O’Dowd
Vice Provost for Academic Personnel
