Academic Professionals (APs) are generally salaried (exempt) employees whose
positions meet specialized administrative, professional, or technical needs.
They perform high-level duties, and frequently have specialized responsibilities
in academic, research, or administrative areas.
All APs must have at least a bachelor's degree in a field required by the
position. Positions frequently require an advanced degree and experience
uniquely relevant to the job. Credentials will be subject to review and
verification prior to hire.
APs receive a contract for a specified appointment period, often with renewal
possibilities for subsequent periods. They have the same privileges as faculty
and non-tenured academics, except those privileges that apply specifically to
the faculty, such as tenure eligibility.
Examples of Academic Professional titles include Dean, Director, Coordinator,
and Specialist. Full descriptions of Academic
Professional Standard Titles are available online.
