Development Leave Request

Per Article 18. Faculty Development Grants and Development Leave:

"Any unranked faculty member who has taught for three or more of the most recent consecutive years and who is currently serving under at least one teaching contract may apply for unpaid development leave. Notification must be submitted to the program chair at least six weeks prior to the start of the semester within which the unranked faculty member is scheduled to teach.

Unpaid leave may be taken for a period of up to two semesters, plus summer, in one academic year or across two academic years. If unpaid development leave is approved, the unranked faculty member will retain their status as provided in Article 29 (Leaves of Absence). Unpaid leave shall not count as time toward CCA teaching service for purposes of other provisions of the Agreement."

In order to request a development leave, unranked faculty must complete the leave request form linked below by the deadline defined in the C.B.A. for consideration by their program chair.

Required Meetings

This statement clarifies the unranked faculty’s duty to “attend meetings related to course teaching obligations when required,” as stated in their job description.

Unranked faculty are required to attend one hour of meetings during Faculty Weeks and one hour of meetings during the semester for each course they teach each semester in a given program, for a total of two hours of meetings per course per semester.

Program chairs will notify unranked faculty about which hours they should plan to attend, and work with faculty if there are conflicts. Chairs will invite faculty to other meetings as appropriate using the established notification email. Chairs will provide alternative means of engagement when possible and not disruptive, such as posting meeting minutes, recording meetings, or holding meetings by Zoom, so that unranked faculty can remain connected and involved.

This meetings policy does not cover meetings related to learning assessment or accreditation, as stated in the job description to “participate in course, program, and college assessment and accreditation activities.”
