Appointments are required in KSAS for all faculty and research positions. An appointment is a contract of employment between the University and the appointee; it is therefore a legally binding document.
The Academic Council governs the policies and procedures for making faculty and other academic/research appointments for KSAS. All appointments, regardless of title, must be made by the Dean. Procedures for tenured and tenure track faculty are described in detail under Appointment and Promotion Procedures on the Academic Council site.
