Letter of Agreement
Simon Fraser University Faculty Association
Section 9.2 of A12.01 states “A Lecturer may apply for promotion to Senior Lecturer if he/she has at least five years experience as a lecturer at SFU.”
The parties agree that a Lecturer may apply to be considered for promotion to Sr. Lecturer prior to the time specified in section 9.2 if s/he has at least three (3) years as a continuing Lecturer at Simon Fraser University PLUS three (3) years as a Lecturer (or equivalent position) at another post-secondary institution prior to the continuing appointment at SFU. The continuing and limited term appointments must have been at least half time. (For lecturers who held a limited term lecturer position at SFU immediately preceding the continuing appointment see section 3.7 of A 12.01.)
He/She must make a written submission, including a full curriculum vitae, to the Dean and copied to the Chair of the Teaching Appointments Review Committee (TARC) by September 15 outlining the reasons for the request. In making his/her determination, the Dean shall consult with the Chair of the TARC. The Dean must inform the Lecturer of his/her decision in writing by October 1, with reasons, copied to the Chair of the TARC.
An unsuccessful early promotion application shall not be a relevant consideration in any future promotion consideration.
This agreement is effective November 15, 2007.
