Recommendations of The Continuing Faculty Senators Council in Regard to the Tisch School of the Arts Teacher Policy
The purpose of the Tisch School of the Arts (TSOA) Teacher Policy is to outline the policies and procedures governing the appointment, review and reappointment of full-time, non-tenure track contract faculty holding the rank of “Teacher”.
At the December 9, 2014 faculty meeting of the Tisch School of the Arts, the Faculty Welfare and Governance Committee, a standing committee of the school, presented to the faculty for a vote the Tisch School of the Arts (TSOA) Teacher Policy. The Teacher Policy was approved unanimously, with three abstentions.
The TSOA Teacher Policy applies to all (i) full-time, non-tenure track contract faculty appointed to the ranks of Associate Teacher and Teacher before the effective date of the Teacher Policy and (ii) full–time non-tenure track/contract faculty appointed to the rank of Teacher after the effective date of the Teacher Policy. Henceforth, the two-tiered appointment structure for Associate Teachers and Teachers will no longer apply. All TSOA Teachers will hereafter hold the rank of “Teacher.”
