This document is designed to provide the faculty with access to current, general principles and procedures that govern faculty creative work, research, teaching, and service. It does not include every practice or guideline that informs School operations or faculty business; rather, it focuses on the major policies, practices, and procedures that concern the entire faculty.
The content reflects a combination of both faculty-approved policies and procedures, and policies and procedures that, over years of development, have become standard practice. Compiling and organizing all of this information required extensive input by many faculty and staff, as will annual updates. The Faculty Handbook incorporates all other Stamps School documents that address faculty governance and policies, and serves as the primary resources for Stamps-related policies and practice.
