Visiting appointments are used to bring individuals to the UA Little Rock campus for special purposes and varying periods of time. These appointments are identified by the ranks of visiting distinguished professor; visiting professor; visiting associate professor; visiting assistant professor; or visiting instructor. Visiting faculty are not eligible for tenure consideration but may be eligible for certain fringe benefits. These are specified in the terms of the appointment.

Visiting faculty have voice but not vote in the University Assembly and in official meetings of the college or school and department. Colleges, schools, or departments may (consistent with the University Assembly’s Constitution and Board of Trustees’ Policy) authorize them voting status by specific action on other matters.

Recommendations for the appointment of visiting faculty originate in the department and are submitted through regular channels on the standard appointment form.
