a) Workload assignments for student credit hours generated by registrations for dissertation credits will accrue to the individual(s) designated as the chairperson or co-chairpersons of students' dissertation committees.

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.
