Important Reminder about Senior Lecturer and Senior Lecturer II promotions

Lecturers must notify their department if they believe they are eligible to apply (see the criteria for eligibility in Article 21.10.5 of the contract and in the primer) by the first day of the Spring semester. YOU WILL NOT BE NOTIFIED BY THE ADMINISTRATION OR YOUR DEPARTMENT OF YOUR ELIGIBILITY, SO IF YOU THINK YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO APPLY.

The agreement between the FSU and the Administration also specifies that faculty members who were Lecturer IIs under the 12-14 contract who were then converted to Senior Lecturer when the 14-17 contract was implemented will be eligible to apply for Senior Lecturer II after 10 calendar years of service regardless of current or past full-time equivalence (that is different from the criteria spelled out in Article 21 noted above). If you fall into this category, then you would be eligible to apply for promotion to Senior Lecturer II now (if you applied last academic year and were not promoted you may apply again this academic year).

We recommend that you read Article 21.10.6 through 21.10.9 for more information on criteria for promotion and timing of promotion.

If you have any questions please contact the FSU.
