Montgomery Coll., Rockville, MD.
The content of this manual was recommended to the president of Montgomery College (Maryland) by the chairman of the Faculty Senate. Chapter I answers frequently asked questions of a personal or professional nature, e.g., contracts, student health, exams and emergency closing of the college. The other five chapters are extracted directly from the college's "Policies and Procedures Manual." Chapter II describes the basic structure of the Montgomery College faculty. The roles of the board of trustees, college president, faculty, and students are described, along with the composition, functions, and procedures of the Faculty Senate and all-college committees. Chapter III deals with personnel administration of the professional staff. Among the topics covered in this section are hiring practices, faculty tenure, salary scale, faculty responsibilities and teaching load, faculty evaluations, fringe benefits, and leave policies. The fourth chapter deals with the educational program, e.g., curriculum and program development. After a short chapter describing business and administrative operations concerning travel allowances and the procurement of supplies, the handbook deals with academic regulations, e.g., matriculation, graduation, course registration, and attendance. Appended are curriculum proposal procedures, organizational charts, and sample contracts. (NHM)
