Faculty Handbook Introduction

This Faculty Handbook is a readily available reference to information for faculty compiled by the Office of the University Provost. The Handbook provides links to University Policies and guidelines from campus departments. Amendments or revisions to cited policies become effective when approved by the Middle Tennessee State University Board of Trustees or by the President. While every effort is made to keep this Web site current, it is possible that certain provisions may be superceded by revisions or amendments approved but not yet posted.

This handbook is compiled for the convenience of the faculty member only. The University may change items or revoke any of them without prior notice. This Handbook is not intended to state contractual terms and does not constitute a contract between the faculty member and the University. Applicable law, Board of Trustees policy, and University policy define the obligations of the University. Faculty members should refer to University Policies for relevant official information.

Questions or suggestions for changes to the Faculty Handbook maybe be sent to the University Provost.

The Handbook is reviewed and updated annually. Policy revision dates are included in the linked sites.
