Therefore, titles used by faculty members should either be their official university titles(e.g. Professor of Economics) or accurate descriptions of their teaching assignments in credit courses (e.g. Professor of Molecular Economics) Faculty members who feel that their official titles do no accurately describe their work should follow established procedures for having their titles changed.
