PROFESSIONAL FAQS - 2012 Professional Program Standards
Standard 25 (2012 Professional Program Standards): How do we upload the faculty information (table)? Do we just refer back to the table maintained on the CAATE site?
The list of Faculty and Instructional Staff is maintained on the Faculty Tab. A direct link is provided within the Standard in the self-study.
Standard 26 (2012 Professional Program Standards): Some of our adjuncts teach multiple courses. Is it sufficient to have one letter for each?
Yes, typically faculty appointment letters would include multiple courses if that was the expectation for the faculty member to teach.
Regarding Standard 30 (2012 Professional Program Standards) (Athletic training faculty number; PD + 1 additional faculty member with 100% of 1.0 FTE dedicated to the athletic training program): if a faculty member has release time for service to the athletic department (for sport coverage), but is considered faculty, with full faculty status, would this faculty member fulfill this standard? Or, does the 1.0 FTE (100% of the 1.0 FTE) mean 100% of the institutional load must be directed to the academic (non-clinical) aspects of the ATP?
If the chair or dean of the academic unit gives academic release time to a faculty member for clinical responsibilities, that person would fulfill the faculty status as described in the glossary and Standard 30.
VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS
