  • Examples of Other University Policies

  • These are policies from different institutions that address faculty workload issues relating to discretionary authority, definition of teaching and service, workload equivalencies, differentiated workloads, and other matters. They showed up first in multiple Google searches using different keywords relating to faculty workload.  They were chosen for listing because of their clarity.  They do not always address the circumstances that can warrant workload adjustments in the interest of fairness and equity. But there are common themes like deference to departmental autonomy/agency/authority. These policies could be instructive in ways that might point to an overarching DU policy about workload, or at least a set of basic principles that faculty dedicated to strong shared governance should expect administration to endorse.
