All faculty positions are governed by the tenets of a collective bargaining agreement. Faculty are hired, evaluated, retained, promoted, and tenured on the basis of conditions covered in the union contract. Primary duties include teaching and related activities assigned during a 9- or 12-month year. It is expected that each faculty member engages in all three activities of teaching, research/creative activities and service. Teaching: faculty members are expected to teach 4 to 8 credit courses per year; develop syllabi, teaching materials (ability to organize, analyze and present knowledge or materials) related to courses taught; and collaborate with other faculty in the development of new courses and/or programs. Some disciplines require discipline specific certifications and/or licensure in the field for practice or functioning within the State of Illinois; degree specific course work and/or graduate degrees in the discipline. In addition, faculty advise students, participate in professional development activities, as well as engage in assessment activities related to accreditation and program evaluation. Research: Faculty members are expected to engage in research and/or creative activity germane to an academic discipline, which results in submissions and material as works in refereed, professional and/or general readership publications; submit and receive externally awarded grants; submit proposals for presentations at academic and professional conferences; or engage in creative pursuits if in a creative, performing or theatrical arts discipline. Service: Faculty members are expected to serve on committees, programs, and/or special task forces at the department, college, university, professional and community levels; assume leadership roles over time and as they increase in rank. These activities are not for compensation and have a relationship to the employee's assigned responsibilities and to the university.
