Faculty Qualifications and Instructor Approval Form:
The instructor approval form is required for all part-time faculty. The form is only required for full-time faculty when qualifications are based on demonstrated competency. The form certifies that the faculty member meets the SAC-determined qualifications for the discipline. When faculty qualifications are met through demonstrated competency and/or qualifications set by a licensing organization in the field, the faculty member must provide supportive documentation of their fulfillment of SAC-determined requirements.
The instructor approval form is to be completed and signed by the administrative supervisor, then forwarded to the dean of instruction for review and approval. When qualifications are based on demonstrated competency the form must be approved by the vice president of Academic and Student Affairs. Upon approval, the signed form will be returned to the division dean or appropriate administrative supervisor. The division dean will retain a copy for the division office and the original instructor approval form will be submitted to the HR Department to be included in the employee's official personnel file.
