How do I apply as a Community Faculty member?
Contact the department (of your field/specialty) to discuss your application, and obtain approval from the Department Committee/Chair to proceed with the application. Upon approval, the department coordinator will provide you with the portal application link.
How long does it take to be approved for a Community Faculty appointment?
Overall it takes about a month to complete the process. The following steps will take approximately two weeks:
- Completed Community Faculty portal applications and uploads will be sent to the designated department on the application.
- Each department committee will review applications, CV’s, licenses and will assign a title.
The department will send its results to the Office for Community Faculty. Recommendations will be forwarded to the Faculty Appointment Promotion and Tenure (FAPT) Committee for vetting and confirmation of titles assigned. FAPT Committee Meetings are held monthly.
Upon approval, the department will send the appointee the Terms of Appointment (TOA) and documents for signature. The appointment begins after the necessary signed documents are received and signed by the Dean. A copy of the signed TOA and certificate will be mailed to the appointee.
Will I receive a UNLV e-mail address?
Yes, after your Workday profile is created. As part of the onboarding process, you will be asked to provide your Social Security Number to be able to create a Workday profile. Once this is created, you will receive an email notification from firstname.lastname@example.org and will be asked to confirm the information to complete your profile. Thereafter, you will be provided with a UNLV email account.
What is an ACE Account and how is it obtained?
The ACE account is created automatically with your Workday profile. The account credentials will be delivered to the personal e-mail address provided during the application process. The UNLV ACE account allows you to log in to various UNLV services and applications with just one username and one password.
For ACE login issues, contact the School of Medicine IT at email@example.com.
How can I obtain library privileges?
Will I get a Rebel Card?
You may purchase a Rebel Card for $20 from the Rebel Card office located at the UNLV Student Union. The Rebel Card is used for campus ID, faculty/staff discounts, and to check out materials from the library.
Will there be opportunity to earn CME credits?
The Office for Community Faculty will inform you of CME credit opportunities.
Am I allowed to put UNLV and my Community Faculty title on my business cards?
Yes. Please ensure that you have a prefix (Clinical/Adjunct) to your title (e.g. Clinical Assistant Professor). The exact phrasing should be:
“Clinical Assistant Professor
Department of Medicine, Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV”
Your title is stated on your Terms of Appointment and certificate.
