Office of the Provost of the University
University faculty appointments for teaching during one or more of the summer sessions are recommended by the deans of colleges to the administrator responsible for summer sessions and approved by the president. Teaching responsibilities in these sessions shall normally be limited as follows:
Pay for each session of summer teaching for university faculty who hold academic year appointments is based on a percentage of individual contracts for the preceding academic year:D
The amount is subject to a ceiling salary level established annually by the provost of the university. Exceptions to the maximum rate may be requested by deans to the provost of the university.
Faculty members whose employment is terminated at the end of an academic year forfeit any summer sessions’ appointment that may have been made for the summer immediately following.
Simultaneous involvement in summer session teaching and sponsored projects may not exceed 100 percent of compensated effort during a summer session. The following percentages are established for each credit hour taught:D
A summer session teaching assignment may not be carried on simultaneously with a faculty grant through the university.
Faculty members on fiscal-year appointments ordinarily are required to teach during summer sessions as a part of their primary employment responsibilities.
In some circumstances, academic units may wish to have faculty teach in the summer as part of their regular assignment of teaching. Such assignments may be made by the unit with the agreement of the faculty member, unit chair, dean, and the approval of the Office of the Provost of the University. In such circumstances, individual faculty members agreeing to such an assignment may not receive compensation for their teaching in the alternate session.
