Faculty Rights Tip of the Week: Office Hours & Course Syllabi

Many of us are currently preparing our syllabi for Spring Term Classes. Faculty often ask, how many office hours must I hold per week?

The collective bargaining agreement does not explicitly spell out how many office hours a faculty member must hold. It does, however, specify that office hours are part of regular faculty duties. 

Specific office hour policies are developed locally on each campus through joint-decision making and faculty governance. There may be some variation in policies from campus to campus.
