Anderson University recognizes three paths for faculty employment: annual appointment, professional path, and tenure track.  Faculty hired for annual appointment are evaluated on mission fit, and teaching and learning.

After six years of exemplary service, faculty on the Professional Path become eligible for multi-year contracts. Faculty on tenure track focus initially on teaching and learning, but they are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, service, and scholarship. Tenure-track faculty promote through professorial ranks and are eligible for tenure status in year six.
