3.9 Summer School Teaching Assignments

It is University policy that no academic year (9-month) faculty is guaranteed summer school teaching. The following is designed to serve as a guideline for the selection of summer school faculty.

No faculty member will receive a summer school assignment for more than two consecutive summers, unless it is in the best interest of the University to do so. For example, circumstances may necessitate that a person teach more than two consecutive summer school sessions, or a person may possess a particular expertise and be the only faculty member available for teaching. However, in all instances, summer school assignments will be made in the best interest of the University. Therefore, the dean of each college or school, along with the respective department chair, will make the determination about summer school assignments. Moreover, each department, within the policy framework, will develop and refine a policy for the selection of faculty for the summer sessions. Such policy must be approved by the dean of the college or school.
