Faculty rank, status, and tenure for librarians

ACRL supports faculty rank, status, and tenure for librarians to ensure that their rights, privileges, and responsibilities in all institutional settings will reflect that they are an integral part of the academic mission of the institutions in which they serve. The following standards have been developed in support of this concept.

Please indicate the degree to which these standards apply to your institution.
