Scheduling - Faculty and Classes
The procedure outlined follows section 250.510 of the UEA contract.
- Human Resources Policies and Procedures Unit 9 (UEA) University Education Association Contract
Scheduling relates to workload assignment. By contract the Principal Administrator
has the actual responsibility for workload assignment. Since assignments and
schedules are best developed at the department level, as indicated in the
contract, the CEHSP Dean has delegated that duty to the Department Heads.
The Associate Dean has been assigned to match workload assignment and scheduling
with funding and major and minor needs. Our value is to offer courses that
allow the students the chance to complete their degree in the expected time
with a minimum, if any, number of bottle necks. Technically, the DH makes
a recommendation to the Associate Dean, and the Dean approves the recommendation
or makes changes in keeping with the responsibility of the Principal Administrator.
To accomplish scheduling and workload assignment, it is wise for department heads to consider the faculty members' expertise and listen to faculty needs and
preferences. However, it will be the department head's decision how to schedule and there is no right or entitlement to get the exact scheduling preferred. It depends on major and minor needs, enrollment, and funding. Department heads are advised to consult with faculty when the need arises. There is no standard mechanism for doing so and is thus left to the department head's individual style of functioning.
