1.2.1.1 Basic Teaching Responsibilities of Faculty

a. Curriculum Development

Although administrators and students may make proposals, the primary responsibility for the development of new courses, deletion or changes in existing courses, the initiation of new programs, the discontinuance of existing programs, or other program modifications lies with the faculty.

b. Course Offerings and Content

Faculty members are responsible for planning and presenting course material; establishing course objectives and requirements including grading policies in accordance with University policy and making them known to students; selecting and ordering texts and supplemental materials in accordance with University policy; preparing, administering, and grading assignments; and assigning grades on or before the university specified deadlines for grade submission.

c. Absence and Class-related Duties

1) Faculty members shall meet their classes punctually unless the Department Chair has approved a substitute instructor, class cancellation, reschedule, or replacement by a substitute activity. This obligation extends from the first day of classes through the end of final examination week. If for some valid reason faculty members are unable to meet classes, they shall immediately notify their department chair and shall do so daily unless their absence was prearranged for a predetermined period of time. The chair, in conjunction with the faculty member, shall make arrangements to offer alternate instruction or cancellation.

2) If suitably qualified ranked faculty members serve as teaching substitutes upon assignment by the Department Chair for a period beyond one week, they shall be paid for the total time that they serve as substitutes at the prevailing overload rate, dependent upon the availability of funds; exceptions shall be approved by the dean.

3) Faculty members shall report evaluation of student work to students within a reasonable time with appropriate comments and/or grades.

4) Faculty members shall participate in the approved college program for collecting data regarding students' perceptions of teaching and learning.

5) By the end of the first week of classes, faculty members shall submit to their department chair a syllabus or outline for each course being taught.

6) Faculty members shall establish an absence policy for students and inform students in writing of the policy during the first week of each class.

7) Faculty members shall maintain for one calendar year appropriate records of student progress in each course to support final grades. In the event of severance from the University, faculty members shall leave such records with the department chair, who shall retain them for one calendar year.

8) Faculty members shall administer final examinations at the officially scheduled times during final exam week unless, for sound pedagogical reasons, the department chair and/or dean approve alternative arrangements.

9) Faculty members shall exercise adequate supervision of students in classroom and laboratory activities and officially scheduled related activities, such as field trips.

11) Faculty members shall ensure that safe practices are followed by students under their supervision where a known potential danger is present.

12) Faculty members and department chairs shall report in writing unsafe conditions of equipment or facility to their immediate supervisors.

d. Availability and Office Hours

Full-time faculty members shall establish, post, and make students aware of at least five (5) regularly scheduled office hours each week of the semester so distributed as to be of reasonable convenience to the students. Additional office hours may be required during advising and registration periods. Faculty are expected to be present and available during their posted office hours.

e. Use of Copyrighted Material

Faculty are responsible for knowing and observing the laws concerning the use of copyrighted material. Applicable federal laws on the use of copyrighted material are available in the University Library.

Adherence to applicable law and to institutional, state, or federal policies regarding copyright, patent, uses of human or animal subjects, facility use, safety rules and regulations, or other related policies contained in the PPM is expected.

1.2.1.3 Basic Service Responsibilities of Faculty

a. Academic Advising

The college emphasizes the role of its faculty in the academic advising of students. The central element in advising is a genuine and sustained concern for students as persons and for their academic and personal growth.

The responsibilities of those faculty engaging in academic advising include, but are not necessarily limited to:

1) scheduling office hours (as specified in Section 1.2.1.1.d) to meet advising responsibilities

2) advising of the student with regard to the student's performance in classes

3) assisting the student in setting academic goals, informing the student of University curriculum requirements, and maintaining a record of the advisement.

b. Share in Governance

Faculty members shall attend and take part in meetings of the department, the college, and the University, and shall serve if elected or appointed with their consent to University, college or departmental committees, provided that such service does not seriously interfere with scheduled classes.

c. Recruitment of Prospective Students

Faculty members may be involved in the recruitment of prospective students.

d. Academic Community Cooperation

While members of the faculty have a primary responsibility to their own department, they are also members of the larger collegial community and should, therefore, make a demonstrable effort to work cooperatively with members of other departments, colleges, or institutional entities in matters affecting the overall welfare of the University.

e. Committee Membership

Faculty members shall not be allowed to serve on more than a total of two University committees each academic year, unless special circumstances so require and as approved by their dean.

f. Meetings and University

Faculty members are strongly encouraged to attend all regularly scheduled program, department, college or University meetings which affect them and which do not conflict with scheduled classes.

This standard reflects the emphasis in the College on the importance of teaching and is based on the assumption of 12 semester hours (or equivalent) teaching assignment per semester. Weights of emphases, which must total to 100%, will be determined through consultation between the faculty member and his/her department chair by the date specified in the dated guidelines using the attached worksheet of "Faculty Activities for Typical Teaching Faculty" (Appendix A, page 15). These weights will then be entered on the evaluation form (Appendix B, page 16) in the faculty member's professional file.

If the faculty member and the chair cannot come to agreement on what the weights should be, they will be subject to binding agreement by the dean, after consultation with both the faculty member and the chair. Ranges of emphases outside of those above may occur to adjust for sabbatical leaves, leaves without pay, reassigned time for scholarly activities, reassigned time for program coordinators or department chairs, or other activities approved by the department chair or dean.

1.2.5.3 Evaluation Process

Evaluations of all candidates shall be done on the form shown in Appendix B using a four point scale where four is high and one is low. Decimal ratings to the nearest tenth may be used if desired.

b. Promotion from associate professor to professor

Five years of satisfactory performance at the rank of associate professor will be the minimum probationary period. To be promoted from associate professor to professor one must either have been granted tenure or be granted tenure at the same time as the promotion. A candidate who fails the tenure review process cannot be advanced in rank.

NOTE: Candidates who are within two years of satisfying the applicable time in rank requirements may apply or be nominated for early promotion. Early promotion cases move forward from one review level to the next in the usual course even when the recommendation at a particular review level is negative. It is left to the reviewers to decide such cases in their best judgement, with the understanding that successful early promotion cases are expected to be extraordinary. (See PPM 8-11)

1.2.7 Criteria Specific to Tenure

In evaluating candidates for progress towards tenure or for the awarding of tenure, the basic considerations described in Section 1.2.7.1 below shall be used. The Departmental and College Ranking-Tenure Evaluation Committees and the dean shall reserve recommendations for satisfactory progress towards tenure or the awarding of tenure to those faculty who in their judgement have met the quality criteria specified below.
