Please note: the Handbook has been reformatted. Changes include combining the six chapters into a single document with consistent fonts, styles, numbering, capitalization rules, etc. (see style guide below for more information). A table of contents has also been added to each chapter. In addition to content and formatting changes, some of the numbering has changed. If you have other documents that refer to numbered sections in the Handbook, please update those references. Under RESOURCES below there is a "cheat sheet" that may be able to assist you.
The handbook is now updated on July 1 (all chapters) and January 15 (all chapters except chapter four which corresponds with faculty contracts) each year. The most recent version of the handbook is always available on this website, so we encourage you to avoid downloading the document.
If you have questions about the reformatting or need a copy of the Word version of any section of the handbook, please request a copy from:
