Teaching and Scheduled Responsibilities

The teaching and scheduled responsibilities of faculty are performed during the nine months of the academic year. The year officially begins on August 15. Faculty are expected to be available on campus from that time through May 15, except for vacation periods and sabbatical leaves. For those who have fulfilled their full teaching load, teaching in a four-week summer session will be under separate contract; for those who have not, teaching in the first four-week term can be part of one's annual load. Teaching in the eight-week summer session is by separate contract and is not part of one’s obligation.
