1 Introduction

1.1 The purpose of publishing the Faculty Handbook is to provide ready access to information concerning the orderly operation of the University. This electronic publication found on the Office of Academic Affairs Web Page provides answers to questions frequently asked about operating procedures and policies, but does not purport to include all information. The reader is encouraged to address to members of the administration or Faculty Senate any questions for which the Handbook does not provide answers.

1.2 As policies, procedures, and operating guidelines which affect the Faculty Handbook change, they will be posted to the web site. Such changes will be incorporated once a year following the Board of Trustee’s approval.

1.3 It is hoped that each faculty member will find the Faculty Handbook useful. You are encouraged and invited to make comments and suggestions to the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor.

2 Scope

2.1 The Faculty Handbook applies to faculty members of Appalachian State University as provided therein.
