Appendix L: Memorandum of Understanding on Transitional Issues for Assistant Teaching Professors

The following language from Article 15 of the Framework Agreement is continued for those Assistant Teaching Professors to whom it still applies:

15.2.4.2. Where, prior to July 1, 2008, an Assistant Teaching Professor has been reappointed at least twice, the Assistant Teaching Professor may, at the time of any subsequent reappointment, request consideration for a continuing appointment. Where the Assistant Teaching Professor does not request such consideration, the Assistant Teaching Professor will continue to be reappointed in accordance with Article 15.2.5. Nothing in Article 15.2.4.2 limits the right of an Assistant Teaching Professor who has not applied for a continuing appointment to request promotion to Teaching Professor.

15.2.4.3. If an Assistant Teaching Professor requests consideration for a continuing appointment under Article 15.2.4.2 or Article 15.2.4.4 and is unsuccessful, then subject to any appeal available, the Assistant Teaching Professor may continue to be reappointed in accordance with Article 15.2.5 and may apply at a future date for reconsideration for a continuing appointment, provided that under the provisions of [Article 15.2.5], the Assistant Teaching Professor is reappointed.

15.2.4.4. Notwithstanding Articles 15.2.4.2 and 15.2.4.5, an Assistant Teaching Professor who has served, as of July 1, 2008, fifteen years as an Assistant Teaching Professor at the University may request the Dean to recommend to the Vice-President Academic and Provost that he or she be granted a continuing appointment. The Vice-President Academic and Provost may award a continuing appointment in such a case where the Dean so recommends after the Dean has reviewed the past three years teaching evaluations, activity reports and any other relevant information from the Assistant Teaching Professor.


15.2.5.1. For an Assistant Teaching Professor who, prior to July 1, 2008, has been reappointed for a second four-year term and who has not been granted a continuing appointment under Article 15.2.4, there will be no review of the Assistant Teaching Professor’s performance for the purpose of assessing the criteria in Article 15.2.3 on the occasion of any subsequent reappointment, unless the Assistant Teaching Professor has been denied a CPI in any one of the previous four years. Where a CPI has been received in each of the four previous years, the reappointment will not require an application or further documentation from the Assistant Teaching Professor.

15.2.5.2. In the event that an Assistant Teaching Professor has been denied a CPI in any one of the previous four years prior to a scheduled reappointment, the Departmental committee that considers reappointments will determine whether the Assistant Teaching Professor has met the Departmental Standard for reappointment. Where the Committee determines that the standard has been met or exceeded, there is an expectation of reappointment and subsequent reappointments will be effected in accordance with Article 15.2.5.1. As provided in [Article 40.1, a negative recommendation with regard to reappointment may be appealed to the University Review Committee.
