TEMPLATE LETTER OF OFFER FOR FULL-TIME WITH REVIEW FACULTY APPOINTMENTS Page 1 Instructions (to be deleted before letter is sent to candidate) This template letter should be used for tenure/grant tenure and tenure-track/grant tenure- track appointments at the rank of: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor, Instructor, Senior Instructor, Professor of Teaching. 1. For other appointments, please refer to the Faculty Relations website ( hr.ubc.ca/faculty-relations/recruitment/faculty-offer-letters ) and use the appropriate template. 2. For positions in the teaching stream (i.e., Instructor I, Senior Instructor and Professor of Teaching) remove any reference to scholarly activity/research. 3. Please maintain the template letter’s structure, do not move sections. 4. Omit any clauses which do not apply to the particular position; for example, joint appointments, grant tenure references, etc. These clauses are highlighted in yellow. 5. Please feel free to modify the wording to make the letter more personal and less formulaic, taking care not to make substantive changes to the language. 6. Considerations: Ensure that formatting (headings, font usage) and abbreviations usage are consistent throughout. Include appropriate, full titles and credentials for those listed as signatories. Print on Unit or Faculty Letterhead. Ensure that the signature lines are included with the body of the letter, and not by themselves on the last page. If necessary, add some spaces to ensure that the final paragraph of the letter and the signature lines are on the same page. 7. After you’ve drafted your offer letter, consider if you need to request a review by Faculty Relations. If you have modified the contractual elements of the letter (i.e. substantive changes, rather than just word revisions to make it more personal or less like a “form letter”), we strongly recommend that you request Faculty Relations to review the letter, prior to signing. If you are unsure whether the letter requires a review, contact a Faculty Relations Senior Manager or Advisor. Please note that omissions as applicable do not constitute substantive modifications. 8. Please review and complete the Offer Letter Review Procedures and Documentation and remember to note the salary amount and the rationale for this salary offer.
