Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Handbook


The Faculty Handbook was developed by a joint steering committee of University Senate and administration representatives, with significant input from a variety of faculty task forces. This version represents the second (major) revision of the Handbook since 1989. The Handbook is intended to be a convenient reference tool for faculty, wherein most topics of particular interest to the faculty are contained. Official policy can be found in the Board of Trustees Bylaws and Policies and in the University Policies and Procedures Manual.

The information in this Handbook is subject to change by the appropriate University bodies. Updates to the Handbook will be made annually by Business Operations in consultation with the Provost's Office and the University Senate. The ultimate authority for all policy matters rests with the Board of Trustees.
