Ranked Faculty Service

Committee service and other service to the college is required for all ranked faculty. Service expectations are commensurate with teaching lines. For example, full-time faculty are expected to provide more service than part-time faculty, and a faculty member with an average course load of three lines per year is not expected to provide as much service as one with a five-line appointment. Faculty service constitutes 22% of the annualized evaluation of each ranked faculty member.


All ranked faculty are expected to meet with their chair to discuss service opportunities and load on an annual basis. Service opportunities should be discussed between faculty and program chair or dean in advance of undertaking tasks or assignments.


Paid coordinatorships, stipended work, or any work related specifically to a faculty member’s instructional duties (e.g. syllabus creation/revision, participation in assessment work, attendance at program/division/senate faculty meetings, etc.) are not considered service, and are part of a ranked faculty’s regular work expectations.


Service Opportunities

This is a preliminary guide to college-wide service and some other division- or program-wide opportunities that are standard across the college. This is not an exhaustive resource - additional service opportunities may exist.


Faculty should refer to their program chair for information about program-specific service opportunities, and to their dean for additional division-specific service opportunities.

If you are interested in participating in any of these opportunities, please meet with your chair to discuss them.

Job Expectations

The following are expectations of all ranked faculty and are not considered service:

  • Attending faculty senate meetings
  • Attending faculty meetings at the program or divisional level
  • Attending faculty meetings called by the Provost or President's office
  • Attending opening receptions, open studios, lectures, or other events
