Libraries' Faculty Independent Professional Activities Policy
Libraries' faculty are encouraged to engage in independent professional activities in addition to their assigned job
responsibilities when the activities increase their professional competence and advance the Libraries' mission. Every faculty
member may use up to five hours per week to pursue independent professional activities. Such release time is considered
part of the faculty member's work week and does not require supervisors' permission. Accumulating and using release time
beyond five hours per week requires supervisors' permission since it may affect the operation of the faculty member's
department. The procedures for taking advantage of this faculty benefit can be viewed at:
