Summer Teaching | School of Art Handbook | Kent State University

Summer Teaching

Teaching assignments for the summer sessions shall be the responsibility of the division coordinators, subject to the approval of the director, and based upon curricular needs, budgetary constraints, faculty qualifications, faculty requests, and enrollment contingency. Resident faculty for the Kent Blossom Art Program shall be chosen by the director of the School of Art and the division coordinators. Summer teaching cannot be guaranteed to any faculty member, and most summer teaching assignments are for a partial load. (See, Article X Section 6 of the Tenure-track Collective Bargaining Unit and Article VIII Section 2 of the Non-Tenure Track Collective Bargaining Unit for how teaching assignments are distributed.) It is understood that summer and intersession teaching is not a right, and faculty members may decline to accept a summer assignment.
