Operating Policy and Procedure
OP 32.23: Concurrent Teaching Employment
DATE: September 14, 2006
PURPOSE: The purpose of this Operating Policy/Procedure (OP) is to ensure understanding and standardized procedures concerning concurrent teaching employment.
REVIEW: This OP will be reviewed in May of even-numbered years by the senior vice provost for academic affairs with recommended revisions presented to the provost/senior vice president for academic affairs (PSVPAA) by June 15.
Approval of any arrangements for teaching in other institutions of higher education must be requested by a letter that provides details of and justification for the proposed employment. The following policy is provided to ensure that Texas Tech University is in compliance with regulations concerning outside employment.
No faculty member or professional employee of Texas Tech University may accept regular teaching responsibilities with another institution of higher education without prior approval of the appropriate chairperson, dean, and the PSVPAA of Texas Tech University. Such regular employment will not be of an extent to impair the performance of the individual, particularly as a teacher and scholar, within Texas Tech University. It is expected that any such teaching arrangement will be for a temporary period only, such as a semester, and will not be continuous or periodic, such as each fall semester.
