Determining Flex Obligation Hours for Faculty
Full-Time Faculty Members
All Full-Time Faculty members have a base obligation of 28 hours. In addition, there is an obligation associated with full-term overload assignements. Full-term overload assignments have a flex obligation of 1/2 the hours taught per week. For example, a three unit lecture class has an obligation of 1.5 hours for each semester it is taught.
Faculty members on sabbatical, and those who are using banked leave to cover part
of their load, do not have a flex obligation for the time associated with those leaves.
