FAC 3.9. Changes of Status.

 

The following procedures pertain to changes in status of unclassified personnel at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

(1)   From academic staff to faculty.

A change from academic staff to faculty requires a recommendation from the affected academic department or unit, through normal administrative channels, and approval by the Chancellor and Board of Regents.

(2)   From faculty to academic staff.

A change from faculty to academic staff will be possible if agreed to by the faculty member and approved by the affected department or unit, through normal channels, and approved by the Chancellor. In addition: (a) the faculty member must be appointed to a position with different responsibilities than he/she had as a faculty member; (b) the new position responsibilities must satisfy those listed in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Academic Staff Policies and Procedures; and (c) the title used must be consistent with those found in the UW System guidelines (i.e., "Unclassified Personnel Guidelines No. 1").

(3)   From faculty to limited appointment.

Faculty granted a limited appointment at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh shall not lose existing rights to a faculty appointment by virtue of accepting the limited appointment. The time served in the limited appointment shall not count toward the probationary period necessary to qualify for tenure consideration unless there is a recommendation from the department or unit that some or all of the time count and the Chancellor approves.

(4)   From limited appointment to faculty.

(a)   If a limited appointee has a concurrent faculty appointment and the limited appointment is terminated, he/she shall be transferred to the department or unit in which the concurrent faculty appointment is held. The time served in the limited appointment shall not count toward the probationary period necessary to achieve tenure unless there is a recommendation from the department or unit that some or all of the time count and the Chancellor approves.

(b)   A limited appointee who does not have a concurrent faculty appointment may be granted a faculty appointment when he/she qualifies and a position exists. Such an appointment will require the concurrence of the concerned department or unit, the Dean or equivalent, the Provost and Vice Chancellor, and the Chancellor. The department or unit shall recommend to the Chancellor the number of years of service in the limited appointment (if any) which shall count toward the probation period.
