ROLE OF REGIONAL CAMPUS PROGRAM & FACULTY IN THE DEPARTMENT
Members of the faculty in the Regional Campuses are strongly encouraged to take an active, positive role in departmental matters. The Department of Geology considers the Regional Campus faculty to be a strong and viable part of the Department providing quality preparation of students in its programs at the lower division level. Full-time TT faculty members at the Regional Campuses are represented on the departmental Faculty Advisory Committee, can be appointed to departmental committees, are notified of and are encouraged to attend departmental faculty meetings and other departmental functions and, where appropriate, are encouraged to share in seminar, colloquium, and classroom presentations.
Although members of the Regional Campus Geology faculty are encouraged to play an active role in departmental matters, in accord with University policy their teaching schedules, teaching loads, and salary raise increments are determined by the Dean of the appropriate Regional Campus. Approval for offering of specific sophomore-level courses on the Regional Campuses must come from the Chairperson in consultation with the Faculty Advisory Committee. Consideration for reappointment, tenure, and promotion of Regional Campus faculty members is initiated by the Department in accord with procedures stated in the University Register and Collective Bargaining Agreement.
