Conditions and Responsibilities of Professional Employment in Higher Education.
Commission on Higher Education, Newark, NJ. Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
Each institution of higher education determines its own conditions and responsibilities of professional employment based on principles of equity and due process. A faculty manual should present clearly and concisely an institution's policies and procedures related to professional employment, and all arrangements between individuals and institutions should be stated and accepted in writing. This document presents some guidelines for the development of policy statements with regard to faculty recruitment, appointment, tenure, academic freedom, salaries and promotions, academic loads, the development of teaching competence, outside employment, leaves of absence, collective bargaining, retirement, and pensions.
