Assignment of Instructional Workload | Tuscarawas Faculty Handbook | Kent State University

Assignment of Instructional Workload

Workload assignments for summer terms will be made according to the approved time lines and will observe any priorities as outlined in the TT CBA. 

Faculty must have approval from the Kent Campus department/school/independent college, as applicable, to teach a given course.  The Assistant Dean will endeavor to distribute course assignments in an equitable manner that provides for fair distribution of the available workload/overload and allows for all faculty members within the discipline to have the opportunity to teach advanced course work offered by the Campus.  In case of dispute or request for special consideration, the faculty member may request a review by the Faculty Council, which, following such review will make an advisory recommendation to the Campus Dean.  Once course assignments are made, changes due to course cancellations will be determined in a manner that is least disruptive and are at the discretion of the Campus Dean.
