Faculty Schedules Procedures

Approved By and Date:Executive Leadership Team12-19-2013

Faculty are expected to:


  1. Participate in day, evening, weekend, and online programs as determined by the Associate Dean as part of their normal full-time load.
  2. Faculty are expected to be available for scheduled student appointments outside of the minimum five hours per week and to attend scheduled meetings as requested. Associate Vice Presidents will hold monthly meetings with faculty to facilitate good communication. Faculty will be allowed to have a flexible schedule for job-related duties with approval from the Associate Deans.
  3. Faculty locator cards should be posted on the instructor’s office door and on the share drive within the first week of the semester.
  4. Serving on College committees is another part of the faculty member’s professional responsibility. Faculty members will be expected to participate in various committee assignments throughout the year. A reasonable effort will be made to relate interests and abilities to committee assignments and to balance these assignments throughout the entire faculty.
