Faculty Duties

Faculty members are expected to maintain at least five office hours per week while on teaching appointment (UPR 3342-6-53).  The office hours are to be posted on the faculty member's office door and communicated to the Department Office as well as to the faculty member's students.  If a student, for a legitimate reason or reasons, is unable to meet at the stated hours, the faculty member should be willing to make appointments to meet the student's needs.

In order to assist in student advising, faculty members should maintain current knowledge of University, College, and Departmental programs and requirements.

Faculty members are expected to participate in recruitment programs, graduation ceremonies, and Integrated Life Sciences functions or other appropriate activities.
