Consistent with the revised (2021) University Faculty Workload Policy (links to latest text and templates below), academic units are expected to develop written workload policies for faculty. Such policies help to ensure equity in faculty evaluation. This page currently links to the 2021 policy and templates as well as unit-level policies approved in conjunction with the original University Faculty Workload Policy (2016). Unit-level policies are reviewed and approved by the provost.
