Employment Outside the University

The University permits a faculty member to accept outside employment, such as consulting work, performances, or teaching assignments, with the clear understanding that these commitments will not interfere with his or her contractual obligations to DePauw University.

During the academic year, including Winter Term, a full-time faculty member’s external employment outside the University may not exceed the work equivalent to teaching one course, typically 160–190 hours. All professional appointments outside the University during the academic year must be reported to the appropriate department chair or school dean and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. These limits do not apply during the summer when the University is not in session. These limits also do not apply during a full-year sabbatical leave, when faculty members may accept and be paid for employment equivalent to teaching up to two courses during the year.
