Ordinarily an individual faculty member’s full load shall be thirty LHEs during the regular academic year, which consists of the fall and spring Semesters. The portion of the full load that occurs in (or is assigned to, in the case of interim terms) each semester is called the base load for that semester. Spring Base Load is 30 LHE's minus Fall Base Load. For example, a Fall Base Load of 17 LHE's might be assigned, making the Spring Base Load 13 LHE's. An individual faculty member who is required by the College to acquire or maintain a license and/or certification in order to perform their responsibilities at the College (e.g., Nursing) may distribute the thirty (30) LHEs of base load among the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Such a distribution will be requested by the faculty member and the Xxxx at the start of the fall term, specifying the base load in each of the three semesters, with approval from the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Ordinarily a nurse returning from an approved non-medical leave of absence will be returned to his or her same position, department, shift and schedule. However, if a nurse would otherwise be denied a leave request, the nurse may elect to waive the right to return to the same position, department, shift and/or schedule.
