Requesting Continuing Faculty Positions

Please use the TRAC Position Request form (available via Dean’s offices at the applicable time of year) when seeking approval for a continuing (T, TE, or NTEN) position to search in the following academic year and start date in the year after that.  There are two circumstances where this form is not required:

  • If a tenure-eligible faculty member is unsuccessful in applying for tenure, the department will retain the line without needing approval through TRAC.
  • If a department fills a TE position with a faculty member who was already in an NTEN appointment, the department will retain the NTEN line without needing approval through TRAC.
