The Faculty Handbook gathers together essential information for members of the faculty. Chapter 1, The Statute of Instruction is a contract between the Faculty and Board of Trustees and explains the duties and rights of the Faculty as defined and adopted by the Board of Trustees after consultation with Faculty. The remaining Chapters serve primarily as a supplement to the College Catalogue and handbooks for students (The Scot’s Key), staff (available on the Human Resources wiki), and all employees of the College (The Handbook of Selected College Policies).
