The purpose of the Faculty Handbook is to define and explain the rights, duties, roles, responsibilities and benefits of being a faculty member. The Handbook does not replace or supersede any other written policies. It is designed to provide faculty with an official policies and procedures document that governs all faculty involvement. These policies are developed and maintained by the Academic Committee and Executive Committee. The President and Dean of Academic Affairs are jointly responsible to amend the Handbook according to the procedures outlined herein.
Faculty Handbook can be accessed at DULA publication page.
