Preamble

The Handbook of the Department of English describes the procedures and policies governing the life of the Department.  Where appropriate, the Handbook will quote specific passages from the University Policy Register and, for additional information, refer both to the Register and to the Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) for full-time tenure track (TT) and non-tenure track (NTT) faculty.  Copies of the University Policy register may be consulted in the office of the Department Chair or in the DuBois Reading Room.  Each full-time faculty member is provided with a copy of the appropriate CBA.  Any conflict between the policies stated in the Handbook and those of the College, the Policy Register, Research and Graduate Studies, the CBAs, and other official policies of the University shall be resolved in favor of those documents.
