Teaching Assignment and Class Scheduling

Faculty are assigned to teach specific courses by the Chairperson.  The primary considerations for course assignment are prior teaching experience, subject expertise, and shared responsibility among the faculty for service and introductory courses and associated laboratories.  Questions regarding the assignments should be addressed to the Chairperson.  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 Chairperson following the review.

Scheduling of classes is the responsibility of the Assistant Chairperson with approval of the Chairperson.  The primary considerations for scheduling of classes are student needs with regard to meeting program or major requirements within a reasonable time frame (normally four years for a full-time student who begins the major in the first semester of the freshman year).  In addition, the scheduling of some classes may be determined by the need to serve the nontraditional student.
