In exceptional cases, and in order to meet emergency situations, the administration may ask a full-time faculty member to teach a course or courses in excess of the normal schedule. In such cases, extra remuneration will be given according to the prevailing salary schedule for part-time faculty. A full-time faculty member may contract for a maximum of three credits of teaching as overload per semester. Exceptions must be approved by the appropriate academic dean.
Contracting in Other Units
The University conducts several academic units and many grant/contract projects. Therefore, faculty members may have the opportunity to teach, do research, or other work in a unit other than the one in which they were originally hired. When an invitation is received to work in another department, a faculty member must receive the approval of his or her department head and academic dean before agreeing to the additional work.
Teaching Summer School Courses
Faculty members who are available for summer school teaching should inform the appropriate department head or academic dean.
Faculty on nine-month contracts will be reimbursed according to the prevailing salary scale for part-time/overload teaching.
