The expectation is that the initial goal will be to establish protocol for 18 hour (3/3) teaching loads in academic programs. Accountability is required at the department and college level.
The focus for reassigned time is on opportunities for teaching faculty to make contributions to knowledge or pedagogy in the discipline.
Reassigned Time Policy Statement
Reassigned Time Expectations:
Scholarly activity is most easily demonstrated by:
Even rejected manuscripts and proposals could demonstrate scholarly activity if the external reviews attest that the manuscript is scholarly.
Scholarly activity may also be demonstrated by presentations or display of posters at conferences in the faculty member’s area of professional expertise.
Although attendance at professional meetings suggests interest in scholarly activity, it is not viewed, in itself, as a scholarly activity.
All faculty applicants will present a plan and timeline for dissemination of the results of the work. For example, this should include the expected journal to which the work will be submitted and timeline for submission after the semester in which reassigned time was granted (i.e., 6 months, 1 year, other).
The deadline for submission of proposals to the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs will be October 1 in order to coincide with staff and schedule planning for the subsequent academic year. Individual Dean’s deadline for faculty may vary. See the Reassigned Time Application Form (.pdf)
