We collect faculty workload data (teaching, research and service) from all six departments of the College of LLL, who are required to provide to the dean a report of faculty workload every fall, including all components of workload–teaching, research, and service. In order to assist the process, the college administers annual online workload surveys and analyzes faculty workload data for the previous academic/calendar year. On the surveys, regularly appointed instructional faculty members (I-2, I-3, I-4, and I-5 faculty) are asked to supply information about their teaching duties, research and creative work, and committee and service activities for the previous academic/calendar year.
LLL Workload Policies
The College of LLL Course Workload Policy [.pdf] states that
“Department chairs have the responsibility to assure that there is equity in course workload across the faculty in their units and that the workload enhances scholarship and professional accomplishments. Annually, the dean prepares a workload report, based on information about faculty instructional and non-instructional activities during the previous year. This report includes not only information about courses taught, and research productivity, but also about other faculty responsibilities, as may be laid out in each department’s Course Workload Policy.”
