Teaching Assignments and Course 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. The Chair will submit to all members of the Department of Philosophy faculty a Faculty Course Preference form. After considering faculty stated preferences, the Chair will submit to the FAC each Fall term a tentative proposed Academic Year Course Schedule for the next Academic Year. The approved Course Schedule may be altered by the Chair for programmatic needs in consultation with the appropriate Coordinators. In the case of a dispute or request for reassignment a faculty member may request review by the FAC, which will make a recommendation to the Chair.
