119 Enrollment of Faculty and Staff in Courses and Instructional Programs
Since it is to the advantage of the University to encourage self-development
of employees, opportunity is provided for participation in training courses
and instructional programs on and off the campus.
119.01 Training Courses
As the need is recognized, the University periodically conducts on-the-job
training workshops for groups of employees in such broad interests as safety,
purchasing procedures, and budgetary control. Department chairs may obtain
further information on workshops or request a workshop offering for groups
of four or more employees by telephoning the Personnel Officer in the Office
of the Vice President for Business and Finance.
119.02 Instructional Programs
Non-administrative personnel are paid for actual hours worked, and any time
off to attend classes on campus will be without pay unless a program is sponsored
by the University.
Administrative personnel may be allowed time off to attend classes on
campus; however, the plan must not be used by the individual employee merely
to work on a degree. Any course must be approved by the employee's department
chair and dean or director, who must certify that the course will benefit
the employee in the performance of his duties at the University. All employees
are expected to pay regular fees.
Employees of any rank may take courses for credit or work toward a degree
provided two conditions are met: first, the state requirement of a forty-hour
week (for full-time employees) must be fulfilled; secondly, required fees
must be paid.
