FWDC 8: Senate Recommendations Regarding Reassigned Time Policy and Practices
1) Many UNC institutions reduce the standard teaching load expected of Department Chairs. The Faculty Senate recommends that the VCAA consider implementing a reduction in the standard teaching load (24 semester credit hours or their equivalent) expected of Chairs at UNCA.
2) The Senate also recommends that reassigned time for administrative duties not be paid for out of the instructional budget.
3) The Senate further recommends that the VCAA award Credit Hour Equivalents (CHEs) which carry full teaching load credit for teaching activities outside the classroom such as the supervision of undergraduate research.
