Joint Appointment & Courtesy Affiliation Policies

You are here

Provisions that apply to Lehigh Faculty members with Formal Joint Appointments involving more than one academic unit can be found in  Rules and Procedures of the Faculty of Lehigh University [R&P] Section All Joint Appointments (Type 1 and Type 2) require a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Courtesy Affiliations are a less formal way than a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to signal a faculty member’s connection to another unit. Courtesy affiliations should be used for situations where the effort in the second unit is less than ten percent. Courtesy affiliated faculty, whether internal or external to the university, will not have voting rights in the unit where the affiliation is granted.
