Fixed Term
Fixed-term appointments are appointments for a specified period of time, as set forth in the notice of appointment. Fixed-term appointments are designed for use at the discretion of the president in such cases as, but not limited to, appointments of visiting faculty (or similar category); academic staff members whose support wholly or principally comes from gift, grant or contract funds, the cessation of which funding would eliminate the budget base for the position in question; part-time faculty; administrative staff with faculty rank; and faculty appointments during an initial probationary period where an institutional policy has been adopted or negotiated that establishes such probationary period.

Indefinite Tenure
Indefinite tenure appointments are appointments given selected faculty members having an appointment of .50 FTE or more. Such appointments are made by the president in witness of the institution's formal decision that the faculty member has demonstrated such professional competence that the institution will not henceforth terminate employment except for cause, financial exigency, or program or department reductions or eliminations.
