Faculty Affairs collaborates with lecturing faculty at the iSchool to build an inclusive and joyful work environment. Like our professorial ranks, lecturing faculty are core to the teaching mission of the school. Also, like professorial ranks, competitively hired lecturing faculty progress through ranks. The chart below shows the progression with descriptions of each rank taken from the UW Faculty Code
|Lecturer||Lecturer and artist in residence are instructional titles that may be conferred on persons who have special instructional roles.|
|Senior Lecturer||Senior lecturer and senior artist in residence are instructional titles that may be conferred on persons who have special instructional roles and who have extensive training, competence, and experience in their discipline.|
|Principal Lecturer||Principal lecturer is an instructional title that may be conferred on persons whose excellence in instruction is recognized through appropriate awards, distinctions, or major contributions to their field.|

The Faculty Affairs Team works with lecturing faculty to identify mentors, and to make clear the policies and procedures for career advancement in the iSchool.
