(Year 1: 2009-2010)

New policy states that “Academic units must develop clearly articulated and easily accessed policies regarding faculty assignments and expectations” and that “the executive vice president and provost, as the chief academic officer of the University, shall review and approve all college and campus workload policies.” All workload policies are due in the provost’s office this fall. The approved policies will be posted on college and campus websites, as well as that of OPIA, by January 2011. Workload policies for the 14 campuses of the University Collegeare already available. Unit-specific data on under-enrolled classes have been shared with all deans and chancellors with the request that they, in turn, share these data with department heads, directors of academic affairs, and others involved in scheduling classes. These data will be tracked going forward with the expectation that colleges and campuses will keep under-enrolled classes to a minimum, thereby increasing both faculty productivity and student learning.
