Summer Teaching Appointments (A-18A)
Original Implementation: April 20, 2004
Last Revision: October 18, 2010
The university offers no guarantee of a summer teaching appointment to any faculty member except as specifically contracted. All summer instructional contracts are contingent upon sufficient class enrollments and availability of funding.
Utilizing student and programmatic needs and considering faculty input, each academic unit and college is required to adopt a written policy concerning the allocation of summer teaching assignments. These policies shall define priority for summer course offerings and set criteria for allocating teaching assignments among the eligible faculty, including the impact of grant funds on summer employment.
Summer teaching policies must be approved by the academic dean and the provost and vice president for academic affairs. Once final approval is obtained, a copy of the policy shall be made available to the faculty. The policy must be reviewed by academic units and colleges every five years.
