Declare Career Track (Undifferentiated Appointments Only)

Candidates on an undifferentiated career track must declare a career track within three years, or (for Instructors) at the time of promotion to Assistant Professor, whichever is earlier. The Faculty Affairs Office notifies departments each summer of undifferentiated faculty who are approaching the 3-year deadline to declare a career track.
