All faculty members are expected to serve on University or faculty committees and to be available for other non-teaching assignments such as serving as a sponsor for student groups, accepting short-term administrative responsibilities, and assisting at registration or pre-enrollment. Members of the faculty are expected to attend all University academic functions, such as commencement at which the presence of the faculty is explicitly requested. As a courtesy, the faculty member should notify the Provost & Vice-President for Academic Affairs when it is necessary for him to be absent from any of these functions.
Faculty members are encouraged to attend lectures, concerts, dramatic productions, and other events sponsored by the University or student groups.
