Anderson University recognizes three paths for faculty employment: annual appointment, professional path, and tenure track. Faculty in the Professional Path focus on teaching and learning and are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, and service; and they are able to promote through professorial ranks. 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.
