Appointment and Promotion Guidelines

The University of Georgia is unique in U.S. higher education in that it has a career track specifically for faculty members who pursue lifetime careers in university public service. Public service at the University of Georgia is the application of knowledge through research, teaching, and outreach to help solve problems in Georgia and beyond. The Public Service and Outreach faculty rank provides an objective career ladder with four rank-levels. The rank does not carry tenure. It does, however, provide objective standards and requirements for promotion.
