X031 SOM track Assistant Professor new appointment

Appointees in this category are normally full-time salaried employees. The initial term of appointment is ordinarily four years.

CLO--The appointment process begins with the submission of a complete Contingent Letter of Offer (CLO) packet, which should be sent directly to OAA. OAA will route CLO through Accounting and Budget office and Facilities office. Once both offices have endorsed the CLO packet, OAA can finalize their review. Once approved, OAA will provide department with any changes and will authorize release of the CLO to the prospective candidate.

Alternatively, if the academic appointment will be reviewed and , if acceptable, approved prior to transmission of the packet and of the facts to the recruit, then a Letter of Offer (LO) should be used instead of a CLO.
