WHEREAS, significant changes have been proposed concerning policies regarding summer
teaching assignments and maximum teaching assignments, and
WHEREAS, we believe more time is necessary to consider such significant change properly, and
WHEREAS, data about the impact of the proposed changes would greatly improve the decisions making process
IT IS RESOLVED that for the Summer Session 2011, the maximum teaching load limitations stated in the Faculty Handbook be suspended and that in the interest of serving students in online courses the maximum faculty teaching assignment for the summer session be increased from 16.5% of base salary to 33% of base salary.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that next years' Executive Committee shall analyze the results of these changes, specifically the potential impact on fall and spring enrollments and the potential impact of equity of summer teaching assignments between and /or among faculty. Further the Executive Committee will make specific recommendations on any necessary or appropriate Faculty Handbook changes.
