"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 teaching equivalency is classified as either established and applied for. Applications are not required for an established teaching equivalency.
The established teaching equivalencies 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 teaching equivalency allocations are intended allow specific faculty to performs specific, short term tasks in support the college's mission.
