Funding Contingent FTE Changes
FTE changes for funding-contingent faculty are allowable by mutual agreement or based on changes in funding, programmatic need, or performance. When possible, units should provide at least 30-days’ notice of the FTE change. Submit appointment percent changes via the Appointment Percent Change Form.
Career Temporary FTE Changes
If a non-funding contingent career faculty member FTE change is temporary and not going to impact their permanent annual FTE commitment, the following statement must accompany the request to change the FTE. The documentation should be in the form of an email to the faculty member with their confirmation/reply included:
“Your regular annualized FTE is [FTE rounded to the fourth digit, e.g. 0.6667]. With your agreement, we are temporarily increasing your [annualized or term] FTE to for ([this term] [the academic year] ) in order to perform the following temporary assignment -. This temporary increase will end on [insert end date] and will not increase your annualized FTE in future academic years.“
Submit appointment percent changes via the Appointment Percent Change Form.
Career Permanent FTE Changes
If the FTE changes to a career faculty member will change their ongoing FTE, documentation should accompany the request. Changes to ongoing FTE must be by mutual agreement with the fauclty member and a statement from the faculty member agreeing to the change must accompany the request. Permanent decreases to accommodate a secondary position are also allowed with acceptance of the secondary position.
