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.
Multiple Position Requests | Forms

For full-time faculty, any hours over the 24 classroom contact hours (AY 2020-2021) require a request for a Multiple Position.  Below are the Multiple Position Request Form as well as the Multiple Position Reporting Form.  Both forms should be submitted to Natasha Brewer in OAA.
  1. If B.1 is noted (working within CUNY), the MP Reporting Form AND the MP Request Form is submitted to the Provost;
  2. If B.2 is noted (working outside of CUNY), only the MP Reporting Form is required and is submitted to the President’s Office
Release Time

Full-time faculty members have a teaching load of 24 hours in AY 2020-2021.  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.  Faculty who intend to use release time must indicate their intent via the Release Time Request Form.

Any forms submitted for grant funded released time must include an award letter indicating the source of funds. 
Spring 2020 Release Time Request Forms are due Friday, October 23 and should be submitted to Mariela Roman.
