2009-2012 NMU-AAUP MASTER AGREEMENT

                                                                                                    Reassigned Time Credit

 

1.1.12           An "overload course" is a course assigned during the academic year to a faculty member by the department head which is in addition to the normal assigned professional responsibilities.

6.1.1.6          Reassigned Time Credit 

                       In order to provide reassigned time for faculty research, professional development, curriculum development, and to supplement sabbatical time and pay combinations, tenured faculty and faculty with Tenure Earning or Continuing positions may earn and accumulate reassigned time credit as described in Sections 6.1.1.6.1 through 6.1.1.6.4.  This program for earning and accumulating reassigned time  credit is intended to qualify as a compensatory time plan within the meaning of Section 547(E)(11)(A)(I) of the Internal Revenue Code but shall not be interpreted as a reference to compensatory time as used in the Fair Labor Standards Act.  

6.1.1.6.1      Reassigned time credits may only be earned for teaching overload classes (defined in Section 1.1.12) for which no monetary compensation is received according to the following system: 

a.      One (1) reassigned time credit shall be earned for each credit hour for on- or off-campus credit.

b.      One-quarter (0.25) reassgined time credit shall be earned for each three- (3) or four- (4) credit course taught as a directed study. 

c.      A faculty member may not accrue more than twelve (12) credits of reassigned time credit during the life of the Agreement.

d.      In order to teach any course for reassigned time credit, a faculty member must sign a statement on the form for reassigned time credit indicating that the reassgined time earned will be used for research, professional development, curriculum development, or to supplement sabbatical time and pay combinations.  (See Appendix C for form.)  A faculty member must submit and have approved a specific plan describing how the reassgined time will be used for research, professional development, curriculum development, or to supplement sabbatical time and pay combinations prior to commencement of the course for which reassigned time credit is requested.  If an approved plan for the use of reassigned time credit cannot be fulfilled, the faculty member and the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs will seek to find a mutually agreed upon substitute plan to utilize reassigned time credit prior to the faculty member's retirement. 

e.      Reassigned time credit is subject to one hundred percent (100%) forfeiture if not used as provided above, except it will be paid upon the faculty member's total disability after approval for benefits by the University's long-term disability carrier, or upon the employee's death while in active University service (i.e., prior to effective date of retirement or other termination).  Upon death, the reassigned time credit will be paid to the individual designated by the faculty member on the NMU Employee Authorization to Disburse Earnings and Allowances Form on file in the Human Resources Department.  Reassigned time credit paid at disability or death will be paid at the rate earned.

f.       A faculty member cannot accept an overload or additional assignment while utilizing accrued reassigned time credit. 

6.1.1.6.2      If faculty members wish to use reassigned time credits which have been or will have been earned before the beginning date of the sabbatical, the faculty member must apply for the half-pay (1/2) or three‑quarter- (3/4) pay option and indicate on the sabbatical application the amount of reassigned time credit to be used as a supplement.

6.1.1.6.3      A faculty member intending to use six (6) hours or fewer of reassigned  time credit must seek the approval of the department head six (6) months in advance and have a plan for the use of the reassigned time credit on file.  Approval of the plan shall be discretionary with the department head.

6.1.1.6.4      The faculty member's plan for the use of more than six (6) hours of reassigned time credit, other than as a sabbatical supplement, must be approved by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs six (6) months in advance and have a plan for use of the reassigned time credit on file. Approval of the plan shall be discretionary with the Provost and Vice President.  The decision of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs is non-grievable.

 PROCEDURE FOR SUBMITTING AND SECURING FINAL ADOPTION OF DEPARTMENTAL BYLAW PROPOSALS

 

It is generally desirable (but not required) for departments to consult with the AAUP Grievance Officer and/or the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs about the content of prospective bylaw changes in the interest of avoiding later problems or pitfalls.

Proposed bylaw amendments will be reviewed by the Bylaw Review Committee and the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.   A submittal form has been developed to ensure these reviews occur in a timely manner.  The form appears at the end of this document.  To facilitate tracking, approval bodies must send an electronic acknowledgement to the sender when documents are received.

The steps below must be followed when submitting bylaw amendments for review:

Step 1.   The department must submit an electronic computer file of the proposed bylaw document, together with the SUBMITTAL FORM FOR APPROVAL OF DEPARTMENTAL BYLAWS, to the Bylaw Review Committee, the department head and dean. 

 

The Bylaw Review Committee will provide a written response to the department within 60 days of receipt of the bylaw proposal.  There may be communication between the Bylaw Review Committee and the department to resolve concerns, but if no agreement is reached within 90 days from the initial receipt of the bylaw proposal, the bylaw proposal will move on to the next step.  

Step 2.    When Step 1 is completed, the President of the AAUP shall submit the bylaw proposal electronically to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.  A statement of concerns, including minority concerns, from the Bylaw Review Committee will accompany any bylaw proposal for which there was not agreement between the department and the Bylaw Review Committee.  

The Provost and Vice President will send a written response to the department within 30 days of receipt of the proposal.  If the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs believes that further changes in the bylaws are needed, this shall be communicated to the department contact faculty member.   If the Provost and Vice President cannot reach agreement with the department about the bylaw proposal as provided in article 3.1.1.4.4, the Provost and Vice President will provide serious and compelling reasons for not accepting the bylaw proposal.  If the department does not accept the decision of the Provost, they may appeal to the FRC as provided in article 3.1.1.4.4. 

Step 3.    Once the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs has approved the bylaw proposal, the approved bylaws must be altered on the computer file such that:  the header will be changed to read:  "Approved by Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs    (name)    on  (date) ," along with deleting any other header that identifies the subject matter as "proposed" changes.  This computer file will be downloaded and kept in the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Office, and a hard copy of the bylaws will be made and sent as an attachment to the following: AAUP Grievance Officer; CAC; Dean of appropriate College; and the originating department.

3.      all words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, etc. proposed for deletion from the base document be identified by using the strikeout feature of Microsoft Word all words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, etc. proposed as new language for the base document be identified by using the shading feature of Microsoft Word such as:

1.2.3.4   Individual faculty membership shall be limited to two consecutive years on the Executive Committee.  This section may not violate the provisions of Sections 6.6 or 6.6.1 of these bylaws.  Membership is limited to three consecutive years on all other standing committees of the department, except (as noted in section 6.7), the Graduate Program Director may serve for more than three years.  Each standing committee in the department and in addition each committee must have at least one new member each year. Faculty in their first year of appointment will not have any committee assignment unless they specifically request participation on a committee.

4.      sections of the bylaws be numbered similarly to the AAUP Master Agreement in which sections are numbered on the left hand of the page (e.g., 2.2.3.3.3), freeing up all space to the right on the page for text;

5.      a header is typed on all pages with the following statement: 

"Proposed Bylaw Changes from (department) Draft Approved on (date)"
"Base Document Approved on (date)"

[Note:  The date on the first line should correspond to the date when a vote on the bylaw changes was taken by the department, verifiable in the minutes of that meeting.]
