Policy 2107 - Faculty Calendar Responsibilities
Effective Date: 5/1996
Responsible Office: Vice President for Academic Affairs
Reference: Council of Academic Deans
Faculty calendar responsibilities in the Fall Quarter begin with the University Fall Faculty Meeting and College/ Departmental meetings and end with commencement. Faculty responsibilities in the Winter Quarter begin with registration and end with commencement. Faculty responsibilities in the Spring Quarter begin with registration and conclude with participation in commencement and submission of student grades for the quarter.
Although faculty are not required to keep scheduled office hours after the day grades are due to the Registrar, they must continue to be available for consultation with students and for College/Departmental meetings until the day of commencement. Any faculty member who will not be available must secure prior approval from the Unit Head.
Participation in Spring Commencement is considered part of a faculty member's contractual responsibilities. Permission not to participate in Spring Commencement can only be obtained by petitioning the Vice President for Academic Affairs by written request submitted through the Unit Head and Dean.
