Workday defines the Academic Appointment Types as follows:
- Primary: used for the person’s primary academic appointment. Every academic should have a primary appointment, so if an academic has only one appointment, that appointment will be primary.
- Dual: used for adjunct appointments, endowment appointments, and other appointments which are secondary and are not administrative or joint, such as someone with two lecturer appointments or two clinical appointments.
- Joint: used for secondary appointments in the Professorial track which meet the definition of a joint appointment outlined in the faculty code.
- Administrative: used for administrative appointments such as chair, dean, chancellor, etc.
When using the Personnel Chooser, you will see all academic appointments and/or positions listed for a person so that you can pick the appropriate one.
