ACADEMIC OPERATING POLICY AND PROCEDURE
|MEMORANDUM TO:||All Holders of Mississippi State University Academic Operating Policy and Procedure Manual|
|DATE:||February 15, 1990|
|SUBJECT:||AOP 13.21 - Faculty Released Time for Specified Committee Chairs|
The purpose of this Academic Operating Policy and Procedure (AOP) is to promote an understanding among the holders of this manual regarding faculty reassigned time for the Faculty Senate Chair, the Faculty Athletics Representative, and the Curriculum Committee Chair.
This AOP will be reviewed every four years (or whenever circumstances require an earlier review) by the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs (APAA) with recommendations for revision presented to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The University operates under the philosophy that certain committee positions filled by faculty members carry specified released time in order to perform the assigned functions. There are three such positions. The University will reimburse the appropriate departments for the percent of faculty time released for these activities according to the following:
Faculty Athletics Representative – Released time of 25% during the fall and spring terms. These equivalent funds will be transferred to the faculty member’s department in August. In the event the faculty member fails to complete the year’s obligation, the funds remaining revert to the Office of Academic Affairs.
Curriculum Committee Chair – Released time of 25% during the academic year. These equivalent funds will be transferred to the faculty member’s department in August. In the event the faculty member fails to complete the year’s obligation, the funds remaining revert to the Office of Academic Affairs.
