Flexible Scheduling

Flexible Course Scheduling

Department chairs and deans assign courses so that tenure-stream faculty teaching five or more courses will teach in each of the regular three academic terms. However, it is possible to cluster your courses so as to have a term without teaching responsibilities, if this meets the teaching needs of the department or school, assists you to pursue a major program of research or curriculum development that requires a substantial time commitment, to travel for purposes of research, teaching, or University needs, or to address significant personal or family needs. Specific guidelines are available from the Provost's Office page of Teaching Resources
