The Faculty Handbook is the statement of the administrative organization of Colorado College and the policies and procedures governing members of the faculty and the academic programs of the College.
This Handbook has been approved by the faculty, the President of the College, and the Board of Trustees and is effective as of July 1, 2011. It replaces and supersedes all prior versions of the Faculty Handbook, as well as any revisions or supplementary memoranda issued before its effective date.
The faculty retains the right to determine policies and procedures which fall within its right of academic freedom in teaching, research, and publication—as guaranteed by the Bylaws of the College (section 5.2). This Handbook is a working guide for faculty and administrators and should not be construed as setting the terms of any individual employee’s contract. Only the initial letter of appointment can be relied on for setting terms and conditions of employment.
The Handbook will be revised periodically when the faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees adopt new policies and procedures consistent with the Bylaws of the College.
