Prof. Carmen Sceppa, Chair of the Health Sciences Department and Chair of the Faculty Senate Agenda Committee, works to develop faculty workload standards
The Faculty Senate on Wednesday 12/7/2016 took steps toward making faculty workload standards—and the metrics by which they’re measured—more uniform and more easily accessible across all colleges and schools at the university. In the coming weeks, the Committee for Academic Policy will further develop specific recommendations to that end. Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the final one of 2016, the senate’s Committee for Financial Affairs reported on best practices among comparable universities for determining faculty compensation.
