Proposed Revisions to University Handbook for Appointed Personnel

To: UA Faculty


Office of the Provost

Subject: Proposed Revisions to University Handbook for Appointed Personnel

Date: July 23, 2019

Notice of Proposed Policy or Policy Revision:
UHAP Definitions: Faculty Titles
UHAP 7.01 Statement on Professional Conduct

Pursuant to the authority established by Arizona Board of Regents Policy No. 1-201, et seq., and the University of Arizona's policy on University Policy-making, the following action is proposed:

ADOPTION OF UHAP Definitions: Faculty Titles and UHAP 7.10 Statement on Professional Conduct

SUMMARY: Definitions of Courtesy Titles, Joint Appointments, Shared Appointments, and Split Appointments are proposed for addition to UHAP; the revised Statement on Professional Conduct draws significantly from recent faculty-led work on defining quality teaching and scholarship, and also Senate conversations on academic freedom and freedom of speech, diversity and inclusion, and other topics. The revisions will draw upon these discussions to update our statement on Professional Conduct and reiterate its guiding principle: academic communities are based on a shared obligation "to respect the dignity of others, to acknowledge their right to express differing opinions, and to foster and defend intellectual honesty, free expression, and academic freedom of inquiry."

Copies of the proposed or revised policies are available at the University Policies website at and Members of the University community are invited to submit written comments using the feedback box on the Policy website or by contacting the Responsible Unit. All comments must be received by close of business on August 26, 2019.
