A joint appointment reflects the active and substantial involvement of an employee in the academic activities in more than one unit. An employee with an academic appointment in one academic unit may be given a joint appointment in another academic unit. The academic unit in which the permanent appointment is held is referred to as the primary unit and the academic unit in which the joint appointment is held is referred to as the secondary unit. A primary characteristic of a joint appointment is the assignment of duties by both the primary and secondary units.
Please note Joint Members of Academic Units (Article 13.9)
