GENERAL UNIVERSITY POLICY REGARDING ACADEMIC APPOINTEES The Faculty Code of Conduct

APM - 015

Part III of this Code deals with the enforcement process applicable to unacceptable faculty behavior. That process must meet basic standards of fairness and must reflect significant faculty involvement. In order to guide each campus in the development of disciplinary procedures that comply with this policy and Senate Bylaws, Part III provides an outline of mandatory principles to which each Division must adhere and discretionary principles which are strongly recommended.

Part I Professional Rights of Faculty

In support of the University’s central functions as an institution of higher learning, a major responsibility of the administration is to protect and encourage the faculty in its teaching, learning, research, and public service. The authority to discipline faculty members in appropriate cases derives from the shared recognition by the faculty and the administration that the purpose of discipline is to preserve conditions hospitable to these pursuits. Such conditions, as they relate to the faculty, include, for example:

  • 1.

    free inquiry, and exchange of ideas;

  • 2.

    the right to present controversial material relevant to a course of instruction;

  • 3.

    enjoyment of constitutionally protected freedom of expression;

  • 4.

    freedom to address any matter of institutional policy or action when acting as a

member of the faculty whether or not as a member of an agency of institutional governance;

  • 5.

    participation in the governance of the University, as provided in the Bylaws and Standing Orders of The Regents and the regulations of the University, including

    • (a)

      approval of course content and manner of instruction,

  • (b)

    establishment of requirements for matriculation and for degrees,

  • (c)

    appointment and promotion of faculty,

  • (d)

    selection of chairs of departments and certain academic administrators,

  • (e)

    discipline of members of the faculty, and the formulation of rules and procedures

for discipline of students,

(f)

establishment of norms for teaching responsibilities and for evaluation of both faculty and student achievement, and
