"Teaching Equivalencies" are a unit of measurement for determining faculty compensation that allows for differences in types of classes: studios, labs, lectures, etc.
The policy is based on the UHCCP policy #9.237 - Teaching Equivalencies (PDF).
The policy does not apply to lecturers, who are still paid according to credit hours.
Faculty assigned time is classified as either established and applied for. Applications are not required for an established assigned time.
The established assigned times are:
- Department Chairs receive 6 credits per semester
- Faculty Senate Chair receives 3 credits per semester
- Curriculum Committee Chair receives 3 credits per semester
Incidental assigned time allocations are intended allow specific faculty to performs specific, short term tasks in support the college's mission.
