Overloads

The Department discourages faculty from taking on regular academic year overload assignments, but on rare occasions overloads may be authorized by the  Chair with the approval of the relevant Dean.  It is also possible that, by mutual agreement of the Chair and the faculty member, a temporary overload in one semester may be balanced by a reduction in another, provided that the total load for the academic year  remains at the 24-hour norm.
