Faculty productivity and recognition for serving as chairperson on doctoral dissertation committees shall include the following:
1. The availability of dissertation assignments will be determined in the summer of
each academic year by dividing the total dissertation credit hours earned in the
previous academic year (summer, fall, spring) by 30. This formula represents the
credit hours generated by a graduate class with an enrollment of 10 students.
2. Dissertation workload assignments are made by the Chairperson of the
Department of Leadership, School Counseling and Sport Management in consultation with the
Doctoral Program Director and the faculty member’s Department Chair.
3. Faculty who feel their work chairing dissertations merits a workload assignment
shall make a formal request to the department chairperson.
4. Faculty normally shall not receive workload assignment consideration for more
than 30 credit hours of dissertation enrollment per student chaired. Exceptions to this
policy are subject to the approval of the Department Chair.
d) No faculty member shall have more than two workload assignments for dissertation in any one semester.
Faculty recognition for membership on doctoral dissertation committees other than as chairperson or co-chairperson shall include the following:
a) Faculty shall include on their annual evaluation reports a merit designation in recognition of dissertation memberships for which workload was not assigned; such designations would normally appear under the category of either service or non-credit generating instruction. When the committee member makes a substantial contribution to the shape of the work or coauthors a paper or presentation with the student, the designation may appropriately appear under research.
b) The Department Chairperson shall, when funds are available, consider requests for certain program resources (e.g., student assistant, travel to conferences, purchase of instructional and research materials, professional development opportunities) from faculty who have completed a number of dissertation memberships.
