Teaching Assignments and Class Schedules

Faculty members are assigned to teach specific courses by the Campus Dean.  The primary considerations for course assignments are department/school/independent college approval, 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 Campus Dean.  In the case of a dispute or request for reassignment the faculty member may request review by the Faculty Council which will make a recommendation to the Campus Dean.  Scheduling of classes is the responsibility of the Assistant Dean with approval of the Campus Dean.  The primary consideration for scheduling classes is student need with regard to meeting program or major requirements within a reasonable time frame.  In addition, the scheduling of some classes may be determined by the need to serve nontraditional students.
