Moving from rank of Associate Professor to that of a Full Professor requires that the faculty member complete an additional seven years of full-time, post-secondary teaching experience after completing the new faculty mentorship period. A faculty member may combine a minimum of three years of teaching at SCC with years of teaching full time at another institution one year after becoming an Associate Professor. In certain extraordinary cases or in cases where faculty members have significant experience, the rank of professor may be awarded earlier in the faculty member’s service at the College.
Candidates eligible for advancement will be notified by the Chair of the Faculty Affairs committee and provided an application for advancement at that time. Upon approval by the Academic Affairs Committee of the Faculty Assembly, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the President, advancement in rank will take place on July 1 to coincide with the contract year and a $4,000 advancement increase, subject to availability of funds, will be awarded.
