Outside Professional Service Report

The University of Toledo policy on Outside Professional Service and Supplemental Compensation as approved by the Board of Trustees on June 14, 1978, requires that a faculty member who considers "engaging in professional service for compensation must report such service to his department chairman." A copy of the report is to be forwarded to the college dean and the Vice President for Academic Affairs with a copy being retained by the department chairman and the faculty member respectively. 

The report is due at the beginning of each academic year and covers any outside professional service which occurs "during any specified contract period, academic year, summer and/or special appointment." Any outside professional service which occurs after the filing of the initial report should be reported by filing an additional report.   Who should complete? Tenure /Tenure Track and Lecturer Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) require this form to be completed

  • The Lecturer CBA Article 26.0 Outside Employment (page 44)

Faculty Professional Development Fund

The primary goal of this fund is to enhance the overall reputation and performance of our faculty and our institution. These funds will be awarded to faculty primarily for the purpose of supporting faculty travel and costs associated with presentations at conferences and meetings as well as those associated with the publication of scholarly work. However, other activities that would serve to enhance faculty performance and reputation will also be considered.  Click here to learn more.

Syllabus Development Resources 

These syllabus resources have been designed to assist UT faculty with the development of their course syllabi and are intended to provide recommendations based on best practices and to highlight sections to meet university, state and/or federal requirements.

Thesis/Dissertation and Independent Study Resources

These resources have been designed to assist UT faculty with the development of a contract or syllabus for thesis/dissertation and independent study, where students may earn academic credit for work that does not occur in a regular course format.  All three documents are not required, but it is expected that the instructor provide a written document that clearly articulates the expectations for the award of academic credit. This includes the articulation of student learning outcomes and requirements/expectations.

Offsite Location Approval Process

Before an existing UT program can be offered at an offsite location, approval must be granted at various levels. The proponent for the offsite location must go through a College offsite approval process first, and then through an offsite approval process supported by the Office of the Provost. This approval process includes foreign programs where a UT degree is ultimately granted.
