This is the VOA Special English Education Report.
Not everyone who teaches in a college or university is a professor. Many are instructors or lecturers.
In fact not even all professors are full professors, many of them are assistant or associate professors, or adjunct professors.
So what do all of these different academic titles mean at Amrican colleges and universities?  Get ready for a short lecture, especially if you are thinking of a carrer in higher education.
Professors usually need a doctoral degree but sometimes a school will offer  positions to people who have not yet receive their doctorate. This person would be called an instructor until the degree has been completed.
After that the instructor could become an assistant professor. Assistant professors do not have tenure.
Tenure means a permanent appointment. This goal of greater job security is harder to reach these days. Fewer teaching positions offer the chance for tennure.
Teachers and reseachers who are hired into positions that do offer are said to be on the tenure track. Assistant professor is the first job on this path.
Assistant professors generally have five to seven years to gain tenure. During this time other faculty members study the person's work.  If tenure is denied, then the assistant professor usually has a year to find another job.
Candidates for tenure may feel great pressure to get reseach published. Publish or perish is the traditional saying.
An assistant professor who receive tenure becomes an associate professor.  An associate professor may later be appointed a full professor.  
Assitant, associate and full professors perform many duties, they teach classes, they advise students and they carry out research, they also serve on committees and take part in other activities.  
Other faculty members are not expected to do all these jobs, they are not on a tenure track, instead they might be in adjunct or visiting positions.  A visting professor has a job at one school but works at another for a period of time. And adjunt professor is also a limited or part-time position to do research or teach classes.  Adjunt professors have a doctorate.
Another position is that of lecturer. Lecturers teach classes but they may or may not have a doctorate.
And that's the VOA Special English Education Report written by Nancy Stanbulk.
