Summer/Intersession/Overload Teaching

The Department Chairperson will solicit requests for Summer teaching from all full-time Faculty members.  Summer teaching cannot be guaranteed, but equity of distribution is sought in making summer appointments.  Opportunities to teach in the summer will be offered first to tenure-track faculty, up to two courses, and then to continuing full-time non-tenure track faculty.  The primary concern in making Summer appointments is the needs of the academic program.  Secondarily, appointments depend upon the nature of the Summer budget, which may vary from year to year.

Intersession teaching opportunities for Departmental courses, as contained in the University catalogs, may be available with the prior approval of the Department Chairperson.

Opportunities to teach an overload assignment will be offered first to tenure-track faculty and then to continuing full-time non-tenure track faculty.  The primary concerns in making overload assignments are the needs of the academic program.
