In the interest of maintaining a high standard of teaching and the desirability of faculty involvement in research and service activities, overload assignments are strongly discouraged. Overload assignments (i.e. workload assignments which total more than twenty-four (24) credit hours per academic year for tenured and tenure-track Faculty and which total more than thirty (30) credit hours for full-time non-tenure-track faculty) will be made only in unusual circumstances. Such assignments require the agreement of the faculty member and the approval of the Chair and the Dean. Overload assignments for full-time tenure-track Faculty shall be compensated at the rate of 1/24 of base annual contract salary for each workload credit hour of overload assignment (see Article IX, Section 6 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement).
