Faculty Rights Tip: Summer Term Employment

Article 21 of our Collective Bargaining Agreement covers summer term employment for CSU faculty. Many faculty with semester, quarter, or academic-year appointments also will find summer employment in the CSU.

Summer employment can vary from campus to campus. It may take the form of state-funded year-round operations (including fee buy-down) or self-support for-credit programs offered through extension.

Summer term employment can be work for extra pay or work that is part of the regular academic year for a faculty unit employee at a Quarter System Year-Round Operations (QSYRO) campus.

If you have questions about contract provisions covering your summer employment you can read contract Article 21.

You can contact your CFA Faculty Rights representative if you need help to exercise your rights under the contract.
