Review Adjunct Professor, clinical and honorary appointments. 

 Adjunct Professor

Adjunct faculty appointments are part-time appointments granted to individuals who have some special professional skill or learning of value to the University but who are primarily engaged in the practice of their professions outside UBC or any other academic institution.

Part-time faculty appointments

  • Professor part-time
  • Associate Professor part-time
  • Assistant Professor part-time
  • Instructor part-time

These appointments are part-time, for a specified, limited term no longer than one year at a time.

There is no implication that the appointee will be considered for any further appointment of this or any other kind on the expiration of the specified term. Reappointments can be made subject to the terms and conditions of Policy AP4 – Faculty Term Appointments (pdf, formerly Policy #42).

Please refer to the appointment checklist for term appointments for the list of documents that must be submitted to Faculty Relations. These appointees are members of the Faculty Association.
