Compensation for Professional Assistance

On occasion, faculty members are asked to support or to participate in a University program or event, such as chairing a taskforce, organizing or participating in a symposium or speaker’s series, serving on a thesis jury, giving a professional presentation or performance on-campus, giving a guest presentation in a colleague’s class, serving as an accompanist for a visiting performer, or covering a class or exam for a colleague. Such routine professional assistance, when performed during the academic year is a normal part of a full-time faculty member’s contractual obligations, and extra payment is not authorized. A faculty member is compensated for non-routine professional assistance, such as covering a colleague’s classes during an extended leave.
