Faculty Affiliate Status

Faculty and researchers with full-time appointments at The University of Texas at Austin can be officially associated with the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) under the "Faculty Affiliate" category. Faculty affiliates teach, research, or otherwise support the development of Latino Studies at UT Austin.

Tenure-line Faculty Affiliates receive 0% FTE appointments in CMAS and have this appointment listed alongside other official appointments in the University directory. Non-tenure track and research staff receive courtesy status at CMAS. Both tenure-line and non-tenure track Faculty Affiliates are listed on the CMAS website. All Faculty Affiliates may ask the Director of CMAS to participate in promotion evaluations with a letter detailing their contributions to Latino Studies over the evaluation period.

Faculty Affiliates receive information on CMAS activities throughout the year via the weekly "Latino Studies Newsletter" and targeted e-mail announcements. Faculty Affiliates are eligible to serve on the Executive Committee, which functions as the advisory body to the Director.

Those interested in becoming a Faculty Affiliate should contact Director John Morán González at (512) 471-5351 or jmgonzal@utexas.edu. Faculty must submit a current CV and brief statement of research and teaching interests in Latino Studies in support of the application.
