Vassar College Faculty Handbook.
Vassar Coll., Poughkeepsie, NY.
This handbook, published in 1975, is designed to meet two needs: (1) to provide a general introduction to the college and its organization, procedures, and services for new members of the faculty; and (2) to serve as a reference book containing precise and detailed information of importance to all faculty members. On matters relating to college organization, including the relations of faculty members to their departments, to the faculty as a parliamentary body, and to the administration and trustees, the primary source of information is the "Governance of Vassar College," 1972 edition. This faculty handbook outlines the academic administration of the college and gives details on various administrative offices. Data pertinent to faculty members deals with salary, contract period, insurance, tuition aid and fees, research grants, travel funds, leaves of absence, housing, and professional societies. Academic legislation and practice is described in terms of grading, discipline, miscellaneous academic regulations, and academic advising. College facilities and services are reviewed along with those in the surrounding community. (LBH)
