- As academic administrators, college deans and department chairs and school directors have a right to expect that workloads will be distributed equitably and carried out efficiently and effectively. The purpose of this policy is to define the way in which these workloads are determined and implemented to meet university goals (guidance on workload definitions and reporting requirements may be found in AA/PPS No. 04.01.40, Faculty Workload).
Workload for department chairs and school directors must be approved by the college dean. Teaching, research, and administrative duties with corresponding workload credits may vary according to individual circumstances and the needs, goals, and plans of the department or school. Typically, a chair or director’s teaching load is 1-1 per fiscal year.
Workload for college deans must be approved by the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. Workload credits may vary according to individual circumstances and the needs, goals, and plans of the college. Typically, a dean’s workload is fully comprised of credits for administrative activity.
