The Faculty Handbook contains the central policies of the University, developed through shared governance.
The University Committee on Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure (UCAPT) serves as the ultimate advisory body to the Provost, who retains final authority on behalf of the President.
Each school and department must distribute its course offerings over all five days of the week and over the full day from 8am through 5pm.
Individual Development Plans may be considered at the suggestion of either the individual or the chair or dean, for those faculty who would benefit from such plans.
The purpose of this document is to provide the university’s specific policy for all courseware.
Each school will put in place an evaluation process for department chairs and, modified as needed, for heads of divisions or sections of departments, heads of divisions of schools, and academic directors in schools where that title is used.
