Policy Statement

Librarians are members of the faculty with rank. Ordinarily, they serve on twelve-month contracts.

A master's degree from a program accredited by the American Library Association will be considered the appropriate terminal professional degree for faculty librarians.

This policy is effective July 1, 2004. Faculty librarians in Marywood University's employ before that date are assumed to have the academic credentials required to apply for promotion.
