Workload Assignments for Probationary Faculty

In the interest of allowing probationary faculty time to develop appropriate levels of scholarly activity, the Chair shall, in consultation with the FAC and with the concurrence of the Dean, exercise some leniency in the application of workload equivalencies for probationary faculty. 

Additionally, each probationary faculty member will be granted nine (9) load hours of workload equivalency for Research Development, which will be in addition to any course releases mentioned in his or her offer letter.  These probationary Research Development workload equivalencies may be used by the faculty member at appropriate times during the probationary period, with the approval of the Chair.
