Released time for faculty will be determined by the Vice President for Academic Affairs in consultation with the President. Department Chairs may propose released time for faculty to the Vice President for Academic Affairs through the Campus Deans for Academic Services and in consultation with the Campus Provost.

Department Chairs should be consulted about and informed in a timely manner of released time awarded to faculty in their departments.
