The online version is the most current and official version of the Faculty Handbook. This handbook is the product of the Faculty Senate and the Office of Academic Affairs, and it is maintained by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate. Substantive changes to the Handbook are approved by the Faculty Senate.
