Scholarship, Teaching, and Service

Per University policy regarding faculty tenure (see University Policy Register 3342-6-14), “For the purposes of this policy ‘scholarship’ is broadly defined to include research, scholarly and creative work. For the purposes of this policy ‘service’ is broadly defined to include administrative service to the university, professional service to the faculty member’s discipline, and the provision of professional expertise to public and private entities beyond the university.”

 

Because of the emphasis on teaching and service in the regional campuses, faculty members have a special responsibility to develop, continue, and sustain, in the long term, a program of high quality teaching and service; indeed, greater consideration may be given to these areas when evaluating faculty whose appointment is at a regional campus.
