Human Resources - Affiliate with the Institute
This document outlines the implementation of NIPP 4.11., "Nelson Institute Affiliates."
Nelson Administrative Process
To initiate a Nelson Institute affiliate appointment, faculty or staff should send a brief letter of request and a current CV to the Dean for review by the Executive Committee at its next scheduled meeting.
Upon approval, the Executive Committee administrator will notify the Administrative Services Unit (ASU). An ASU representative will create an offer letter, enter the appointment into the Human Resources System, and place a copy of the CV and offer letter in the personnel file. The Executive Committee administrator will send the offer letter and a welcome packet to the affiliate.
Nelson Institute affiliate appointments are for three years. The appointment start date is the date the request was approved and the end date is June 30.
Affiliate appointments can be renewed indefinitely for three-year terms. In Spring, the Executive Committee administrator will run a report to identify affiliates with expiring terms and contact affiliates to determine whether they wish the appointment to be renewed. The Executive Committee reviews all renewal requests. The above procedures will be followed for approved renewals.
