A: Full-time faculty members have a duty to participate in University governance. As with Teaching and Research, such Service is protected by the principles of academic freedom. While NOT normally subject to additional compensation (beyond the terms of the collective agreement), no faculty member should feel obligated to undertake specific Service activities against their will. Please contact us if you feel that you are being improperly pressured to take on Service work. Part-time faculty members are NOT normally expected to participate in University governance. Should you ever agree to do any work that goes beyond your contractual Teaching responsibilities, you must be fairly compensated via a further contract of Additional Duties. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
