Section 8.1 Use of Title. Those appointed as faculty affiliates shall carry the title Faculty Affiliate in (Dept.) or Senior Faculty Affiliate in (Dept.).

Section 8.3 The Rank of Senior Faculty Affiliate. The rank of Senior Faculty Affiliate in (Dept) shall be reserved for those faculty members who have made meritorious contributions to University of Massachusetts Medical School programs over a period of at least ten (10) years, or who have achieved special distinction or recognition in their professional activities. The rank of Senior Faculty Affiliate may also be used for a retired faculty member who has served for ten (10) years prior to his/her retirement.
