SI Affiliated Faculty Policy

Affiliated faculty advance the teaching and research missions of the School of Information and are expected to present their research once a year, or every other year, in the School of Information (simply contact the department to find out the SI faculty member organizing research talks). In many cases affiliated faculty serve on doctoral committees and teach SI courses or cross-listed courses with other departments.

Affiliated faculty are appointed on a 3-year term. 

To request formal affiliation (0% courtesy appointment in the School of Information). 100% faculty appointment outside of the School of Information is required, affiliation will be reviewed periodically to evaluate ongoing involvement with the School.
