Faculty members on full-time contracts are considered full-time employees of the College during the academic year. Faculty members should not agree to do outside work which distracts from their work and responsibilities at the College. Outside activities which relate to their teaching, professional development, and service to the wider community are acceptable with approval by the department chair, area chair, and Provost. These activities might include consultations, workshops, scholarly reviews, artistic performances, and lectures.
It is especially important that Faculty members remain available to students. College resources should not be used without permission to support outside activities unrelated to the College, since this use constitutes a conflict of interest. Activities must not reflect discredit on the College or be in direct or indirect competition with present or potential offerings or official activities of the College. Failure to comply may result in dismissal for cause.
