All university faculty holding rank have a position description (PD) as outlined in FSH 3050 "Position Descriptions". It establishes each faculty member’s duties in the four major responsibility areas of Teaching and Advising, Scholarship and Creative Activities, Outreach and Extension and University Service and Leadership identified in (FSH 1565 C).
This process was significantly revised in spring 2018. Changes include moving to an online system, a new PD format, new PD content and the elimination of an annual process.
The Calendar for U of I Faculty Processes establishes the timeline and identifies deadlines for submitting documents to the Provost’s Office. Deadlines for the new process in fall 2018, however, are as follows:
- Oct. 12: New hires (if no new hire, then complete at least one assistant professor)
- Nov. 9: Assistant Professors
- Nov. 30: Associate Professors
- Dec. 14: Full Professors, Distinguished Professors and faculty administrators
