A Summary of Institutional Policies Affecting Outside and Offload Employment for Faculty at Maryland Public Higher Education Institutions.
Policies governing external and offload employment of faculty in Maryland public higher education institutions are addressed, with attention directed to the relationship of external employment to the roles and missions of higher education institutions, current policies and regulations at Maryland public institutions, and policies used by peer institutions in other states. One mechanism available for fulfilling part of the university's public service responsibility is to permit and encourage individual faculty to consult or to provide professional services. Outside employment can also enhance the competence of the faculty member through contact with current problems and developments. This allows the individual to provide better service to students and colleagues within the institution and may help focus attention on productive areas for study or research. Policies of the institution are based on the need to protect an investment in individual faculty members by assuring that they are meeting their full-time responsibilities to the institution. External employment refers to compensated work performed for individuals or organizations other than the institution where the person is employed full-time. Offload or overload is interpreted to mean compensated overload employment within the institution beyond the full-load requirements of the individual. The policies of specific universities and sectors/levels are specified. The policies at Maryland universities and four-year colleges are generally consistent with those of peer institutions across the country. Institutions supplying information on policies are identified. (SW)
