7.7.5 Rights and Responsibilities of Faculty

Approved by Academic Council, Administration

Faculty holding an affiliation or joint appointment in two units have the responsibility to meet the needs of those units, taking into account the relative proportion of their time and salary allocated to those two units. The University has the responsibility to recognize and avoid the abuses which may arise under such circumstances. The status of joint appointment or affiliation means that a faculty member's time is divided between two or more units; consequently, no one unit can expect what is expected of full-time members. A faculty member should not be subjected to conflicting demands in class scheduling or conflicting expectations for professional development. Any faculty member who feels such conflicting expectations may make the complaint known to the Chair (where applicable) and to the dean or deans concerned who shall attempt to resolve the conflict, with the assistance of the Provost, if necessary.
