PROFESSIONAL FAQS - 2012 Professional Program Standards
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
The program will most likely not hire a faculty member to meet this requirement. A program will continue to submit progress report indicating how the instructional needs of the program are being met.
Will a program who is Voluntary Withdrawing have to remain compliant with Standard 30 if they are in the last year of their teach-out plan?
f withdrawal is voluntary, all aspects of the programs closure plan, including their teach-out plan and staffing levels, must be approved by the Commission.
