Teaching Assignments and Class Schedules
Faculty members are assigned to teach specific courses by the Chair. The primary considerations for course assignments are prior teaching experience, subject expertise, and shared responsibility among the faculty for service and introductory courses. Questions regarding teaching assignments should be addressed to the Chair. In the case of a dispute or request for reassignment the faculty member may request review by the FAC which will make a recommendation to the Chair.
Scheduling of classes is the responsibility of the Assistant Chair with approval of the Chair. The primary consideration for scheduling classes is student need with regard to meeting program or major requirements within a reasonable time frame. In addition, the scheduling of some classes may be determined by the need to serve nontraditional students.
The process and procedures for academic year teaching assignments are described in the Department Operating Procedures
