Faculty Members. 16.01.01 The responsibilities of faculty members (excluding those appointed as Contract Lecturer Members) at Lakehead University shall encompass an appropriate combination of teaching, research and other scholarly and creative activities, administrative activities, and service to the profession and community.
Faculty Members. 11.01 A faculty member’s professional obligations and responsibilities to the University shall encompass: (a) teaching; (b) research, scholarly or creative activity; (c) service to the University. While the pattern of these duties may vary between streams and may vary from individual to individual, they constitute the faculty member’s principal obligation during the employment year, and include, without being restricted to, responsibilities as follows:
Faculty Members. “Faculty Members” are those employed in the full-time service of Lincoln with primary responsibility for the academic job assignment. Faculty members shall also include Librarians holding Faculty Rank and Visiting Faculty Positions. Excluded from the term “Faculty Members” are: persons employed as adjunct faculty position, deans, directors of special programs who do not hold faculty rank, the Director of Co-op Education, Vice Presidents, the President, and Counselors.
Faculty Members. Each Dean, in consultation with the chairperson of the Admission Appeals Subcommittee, will appoint a faculty member to the subcommittee. Appointments shall be made in May to replace faculty members whose terms have expired. An appointment to fill a vacancy should be made when the vacancy occurs.
Faculty Members. (i) In the College of Business Administration, Engineering & Science, Health Professions, Liberal Arts & Education, and the School of Architecture the work year for a Faculty Member shall not exceed nine (9) months and shall be scheduled between August 16 and August 15 of the following year. In schools or colleges where the Employer does not operate a trimester program, a Faculty Member may be assigned to work Term I and Term II; or Term I, Summer I and Summer II; or Term II, Summer I and Summer II. Summer I and Summer II assignments can only be made with the consent of the faculty member involved. In schools or colleges where the Employer operates a trimester program, a Faculty Member may be assigned to any two trimesters.
Faculty Members. The Union and the Employer recognize a uniform, standard workload has little or no meaning for faculty members; reason must supersede narrowly defined standard workloads. Actual workloads are affected by, among other things, the instructional and evaluation methods employed, courses being taught, extent and nature of preparations required, number of students enrolled, prior experience of the faculty member, and commitments to research, advising, and University service. Whenever possible, workloads assigned should be the products of a mutual agreement between the faculty member and the University. In those cases where the assigned workload is believed to be excessive, the faculty member should perform the duties so assigned and pursue the grievance procedures outlined in Article VIII of this Agreement or the alternative option listed in Article 6.4. An employee will be assigned any combination of the responsibilities specified for his/her classification in Article 6.2, which is consistent with the provisions and workload limitations specified herein. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to limit the right of faculty to voluntarily assume responsibilities beyond the stated maximum. In certain cases, including interdisciplinary courses, team teaching may be desirable and add value for student learning. Faculty involved in team teaching (defined as joint responsibility for full course content and evaluation throughout the course) each receive full course credit for teaching load and remuneration purposes. Split teaching (each faculty member is responsible for and participates only in his/her portion of the course) is not part of this paragraph.
