Motion 17-18-009

Request for the Formation of an Ad Hoc Committee to Develop Guidelines and Criteria for the Transition from the Intructor to Assistant Professor

Whereas, Instructors who have attained their doctoral degrees may apply to become Assistant Professors at the UH Hilo.

Whereas, there are no faculty-developed guidelines or other specified criteria for Instructors who wish to pursue this path.

Whereas, in the past, some Instructirs who moved into Assistant Professor (Temporary) or Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) reported experiencing anxiety due to the lack of clear faculty guidelines or other criteria for such a move.

Therefore, it is requested that the UH Hilo Faculty Congress form an Ad Hoc Committee to Develop Guidelines and Criteria for the Transition of Instructor to Assistant Professor positions at the UH Hilo.
