Workload Equivalencies

Workloads and Workload equivalencies for Ashtabula Campus faculty are the same regardless of rank or bargaining unit membership.

 

At the discretion of the Campus Dean, a faculty member who makes special contributions to the Campus in areas other than classroom teaching may receive special assignment hours, equivalent to teaching hours to carry out those contributions. (This provision does not refer to the normal, expected faculty activities considered to be “service.”)

 

Credit-bearing Courses

The Ashtabula Campus will assign workload for teaching assignments that follows the workload amounts established by the academic units on the Kent Campus include the Regional College. Ashtabula Campus faculty can expect to receive the same workload for the same course taught by a Kent Campus faculty member.
