1 The lecturer rank has historically not been included in this document because of its widespread and varied use, particularly in conjunction with appointments of administrative or professional non-tenure-track faculty members. Beginning July 1, 2017, minimum entry-level salaries for new faculty hires will be included for lecturers whose responsibilities are primarily instructional in the Academic Division and at the College at Wise.
