Non-Tenure Track Faculty at CSU

At CSU, non-tenure track faculty can be appointed as contract faculty, continuing faculty, and adjunct faculty. Each of these appointment types can be full-time (minimum of 9 months) or part time (any fraction less than 100%, but no less than 50% of full-time). For more information about each of these appointment types, please refer to Section E of the Faculty and Administrative Professional Manual.

The Committee on Non-Tenure Track Faculty (CoNTTF) is a standing committee of Faculty Council and is composed of non-tenure track faculty (NTTF) representatives from each College and two tenured faculty. It is the representative body for all non tenure-track faculty at Colorado State University.
