3361:30-17-02 Compensation: additional for administrators and staff officers.

A set of guidelines on policy regarding compensation for administrative and staff officers who assume teaching duties at the university was adopted by the university cabinet and the administrative council in 1970. The guidelines are:

(A) No administrative officer of the rank of dean or above (or its equivalent in non-academic offices) will receive any extra compensation for teaching classes at the university of Cincinnati.

(B) Full-time administrative officers, below the rank of dean, holding academic rank and eligible for tenure, are encouraged to continue teaching in their associated department, but are to receive no extra compensation for such supplementary teaching for daytime classes in the regular school year or summer term.

(C) Full-time administrative or staff officers not holding academic titles and not eligible for tenure may, with the approval of the appropriate vice president, be appointed as a term adjunct and receive compensation for supplementary teaching in the regular school year or summer term but only if the released time for such teaching does not exceed the instructional period and only on recommendation of his or her department head. These special cases must be justified on the grounds that considerable time is spent in preparation, grading, and planning the courses which is done at times other than those of regular employment.
