These ranks are intended for the appointment of individuals whose interests, as well as those of the University, are served by their continuing in a professional capacity outside the University while teaching less than full time. Adjunct faculty members do not serve as the principal advisers of dissertations or vote on faculty appointments. With the approval of the chair and the dean or the dean's designate, they may become principal investigators of grants.

Appointments are made for terms of up to three years at the rank of assistant professor and five years at the rank of associate professor or professor. Request for faculty position and searches are not necessary for adjunct ranks.
