Faculty Apportionment: Research

In general, tenure-line faculty members are expected to maintain an active research program and to contribute to the scholarly discourse through publications and presentations in appropriate scholarly venues. In CYAF, allocation of faculty effort in research and scholarship is formalized through one of two mechanisms. A) Most tenure-line CYAF faculty hold an Agriculture Research Division (ARD) appointment through IANR. B) Those not holding an ARD appointment are assigned a teaching load that accounts for effort in research and scholarship. The Department Chair adjusts apportionment of responsibilities based on need, faculty talent and skills, and the potential of faculty members to contribute to the research mission.
