Faculty Recruitment Manual


Preparation of PROV100, Part B

(Request for Authority to Extend Offer of Appointment)

Approval of this document authorizes the unit to extend an offer of appointment to the recommended candidate.  For a faculty position within a department, the signatures of the Department Head/Chair, the Dean, and the Provost are required.  For a department head/chair position or for a position within a dean’s office, the signatures of the Dean and the Provost are required.  For a dean position, the signatures of the Provost and the President are required.

The job title or rank on Part B of the PROV100 must match the job title or rank on the previously approved Part A of the PROV100.

If this is a new position for which no funds are currently budgeted, or if the recommended salary is greater than the funds currently budgeted on this position, the source(s) of new or additional funding must be identified.

Should the recommended candidate be ABD, with the doctorate being required for appointment as an assistant professor, a statement must be added to the bottom of the PROV100, Part B, indicating that if the Ph.D. is not complete at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin, the initial rank will be Instructor at a salary of $xx,xxx.  The amount listed must be a minimum of $3,000 less than the recommended salary as Assistant Professor, with the exact amount of the salary reduction having been determined by the Department Head/Chair with the approval of the Dean.  It is expected that the salary will be comparable to others in the department holding the faculty rank of Instructor and having similar responsibilities.  If Ph.D. is not earned by 5/15/XXXX, appointment will be terminated.

The above option is available only when the department’s recruitment materials indicated that ABD candidates would be considered.  If recruitment materials did not indicate that ABDs would be considered and the recommended candidate is ABD, a statement must be added to the bottom of the PROV100, Part B, indicating that if the Ph.D. is not complete at the time the appointment is scheduled to being, the offer of employment will be withdrawn.
