I. Resident Faculty
A full-time teaching load requires 30 instructor load points to be accumulated according to assigned instructional responsibilities during a contracted academic year. Points over 30 constitute an overload.
For instructor loads involving primarily lecture hours, or lecture with intensive laboratory preparation, one instructor load point is assigned per lecture hour of instruction and .7 per laboratory hour. These hours accrue to no less than 30 in an academic year assignment.
For assignments involving predominantly laboratory instruction, with an emphasis upon the "hands-on" supervision of student learning activities, instructors may be assigned up to 39 contact hours per week. These instructional responsibilities occur in some skills-intensive programs.
Overload compensation for instructors under the point formula is calculated multiplying the overload rate per overload point. For instructors assigned by contact hour, overload is compensated at the appropriate rate for the hours worked over full-time.
II. Associate Faculty
Associate instructors will be compensated based upon the same formula. Lecture hours will accrue one instructor load point per credit, and 0.7 laboratory hours. Total load points will provide the basis for calculating salary. The examples below are premised on a base of $406 per instructor load point.
|Course||Credit Hours||Lecture Hours||Lab Hours||Instructor Load||-|
- Courses scheduled in sections with varying course credits and instructor load points will be loaded at the highest course amount for which there are students enrolled.
- If course contact hours are divided among instructor hours, and lab assistant hours when the instructor is not present, the instructor is loaded only for those hours of his/her responsibility.
- Given the complex nature of multi-course science laboratories, and their multiple lab preparations, the contact hours of these sections may be loaded as lecture hours.
