Policy

Teaching by senior administrators is only allowed with prior approval from the Provost Office.

Administrators who teach courses will receive the adjunct rate (unless they have been designated as a senior adjunct) for classes taught provided that the administrator receives an adjunct contract for the semester in which he/she is teaching. Administrators shall not be eligible to receive payment for independent study.

With the exception of FORE classes, if an administrator is asked to teach a course(s) during normal work hours for payment, he/she must submit the days/times of the class, along with the method of making up the work hours, to the Director of Employment, Employee and Labor Relations.

The written approval of the Office of Human Resources is required to teach a non-FORE class during normal work hours.

Deans and Executive Leadership members shall not be eligible to receive additional compensation for teaching at any time. Exceptions will be made only in the best interest of the University and only with the appropriate approval from the Provost.

Written approval from The Office of Human Resources and the employee’s immediate supervisor is needed to teach more than 3 credits in any semester. Normally administrators will not be allowed to teach more than 6 credits per semester.
