Workload and Release Time

Faculty workload rules are determined by agreement between the Professional Staff Congress and CUNY Central.  Faculty may access detailed information about workload agreements in the PSC Contract. Faculty are responsible for accurately recording and reporting their workload each semester. Below are resources designed to assist faculty in reporting and determining allowable workload.

Release Time

Full-time faculty members have a teaching load of 27 hours each academic year.  Release time allows faculty to dedicate a portion of time to administrative or research and scholarship activities. Release time must be approved by department chairpersons and the provost.  All release time must be requested via the Release Time Request Form.
Any forms submitted for grant funded released time must include an award letter indicating the source of funds. 
Fall 2017 Release Time Request Forms are due March 31 and should be submitted to Mariela Olivier in B447.
