Subject: Work Schedules and Office Hours
Date Adopted: January 1, 1991, Revised November 15, 2000
The College has two work calendars, administrative and faculty.
People on the administrative calendar work 40 hour weeks, usually from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Administrative and auxiliary offices are normally open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Other hours or work schedules may be approved by the President. People on the administrative calendar follow the State of Arkansas Uniform Leave Policy. (See Appendix E.)
People on the faculty calendar work 40 hour weeks, but not necessarily in their College offices or work stations. Each faculty member will keep scheduled office hours which are computed at two-thirds of the teaching load (e.g., 10 office hours for a 15 hour teaching load.) Faculty shall maintain office hours five days per week, Monday through Friday, to ensure availability to students. Faculty members will work with their division chairperson to determine suitable office hours. Each faculty member's office hour schedule is to be posted on his or her office door and provided to the Vice President for Instruction.
Annual leave for people on the faculty calendar is contained in days off within the College calendar. Personal leave (2 days) and sick leave are in addition to days off within the College calendar.
