There are currently no University-wide definitions or practices governing Status-Only, Adjunct and Visiting academic appointments. Nevertheless, these categories are widely used and some characteristics are typical of each type of appointment.

The “Provost’s Guidelines for Status-Only, Adjunct and Visiting Professor Appointments” have been developed to define and standardize the use of these appointment categories across the University.

The “Guidelines” and template letters of offer for each category of appointment are available at http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/English/page-6-14953-1.html. The “Guidelines” and the template letters will be published in the “2005-06 Academic Administrative Procedures Manual”.
