- Faculty Appointment and Promotions Guidelines
In late 2015, we developed and adopted the Policies and Guidelines Governing Appointments, Promotions and Professional Activities of the Faculty (“A&P Guidelines”). The A&P Guidelines contained extensive changes in our appointments and promotions procedures, as part of our journey to develop RBHS into one of the best academic health centers in the country. Among the changes in the A&P Guidelines was the implementation of a track system, as we also wanted a promotion pathway for faculty whose activities were highly valued, but could not have been promoted under the old UMDNJ system.
When we first developed and adopted the A&P Guidelines, we knew there would be a need for clarification and further guidance. In the last few months, the RBHS provosts have received suggested revisions from the faculty and from A&P committees, in response to our first year working with the A&P Guidelines. A document showing the changes to certain criteria in the A&P Guidelines that the University is implementing in response to these suggestions and a clean copy of the revised version of the A&P Guidelines can be found at the links below. The revised version of the A&P Guidelines will take effect immediately. We appreciate that a number of important, suggested revisions may not be reflected in this document but some of those suggested, procedural revisions will be raised during negotiations with the Union for the next collective negotiations agreement.
Academic Labor Relations
The Office of Academic Labor Relations is part of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. They are responsible for managing universitywide academic labor relations and supporting academic units with regard to faculty personnel matters. Topics include: administration of the collective negotiations agreements covering academic personnel; faculty grievance procedures; faculty appointments, reappointments, and promotions; teaching assistants and graduate assistants; part-time lecturers; postdoctoral associates and fellows; winter and summer instructors; interns and residents (housestaff); and faculty retirement, leave issues and disability accommodations.

Designation of Retiring Faculty as Emeriti
Rutgers University Policy 60.5.3 indicates that emeritus/emerita titles are granted upon retirement to persons who retire after having served in a full-time professional capacity at Rutgers University for ten years or more, or as a full professor at Rutgers University for at least five years, plus a significant number of years in a professional capacity in another accredited university or college to make a total of at least ten years. All faculty entitled to the emeritus/emerita designation will automatically be "promoted" to this title at the time of their retirement and will receive an Emeritus certificate from the President.
Retired Faculty Association - The Retired Faculty Association (RFA) was formed in 1999 with the main goal of maintaining connections and involvement with faculty retirees after their teaching, research and clinical days have wound down.
The Faculty Survey is the primary instrument for collecting scholarly, creative, clinical, research, and service activities of full-time faculty. It is a paperless data collection environment with continuous, secure and easy access to personal database.
