Faculty Handbook

Faculty Manual
Not the Handbook but the Manual. This web based document contains a lot of very useful information on the rules and regulations that faculty are supposed to follow. It is published by the two Office(s) of the Campus Provost. In addition to rules and regulaltions, it also has a lot of useful general information for all faculty. For the record, it has never received fomal faculty approval.
