Policy Purpose and Description  

This document outlines the policy for faculty within CLAS to reside in the vicinity of campus.  The process to request an exception to this policy is also included in this document. 




The University policy related to presence on campus is outlined in, Operations Manual, III-15.5, including being available for students and for departmental responsibilities during the entire academic year.  These responsibilities imply that the faculty member must reside at a proximity to campus that makes it practical for them to be available, on a daily basis, for teaching, advising, collaboration, service, attendance at faculty meetings, and participation in the life of the department, College, and University.   

If the faculty member wishes to be away from campus for three weeks or longer during the academic year, they will need to request permission from their DEO and the Area Associate Dean in advance.
