PURPOSE:

To provide a policy encouraging full-time contract appointees (other than Group I faculty on the Athens campus, Vice Presidents, and Deans), holding fiscal year contracts at Ohio University to apply for admission to graduate study.


POLICY:

All persons on full-time presidential contract, except senior administrators (Vice Presidents, vice Provosts, Associate Provosts, and Deans) are eligible to apply for admission to a graduate program or to non-degree status. The Associate Provost for Graduate and Research Programs and the Graduate Council will review all applications for potential conflict of interest. If the Graduate Council determines that a conflict exists, the faculty member or administrator shall not be admitted to a graduate program. It is the responsibility of the Associate Provost for Graduate and Research Programs to see that this review takes place at the earliest possible date.

A full-time faculty member or full-time administrator at Ohio University who is admitted to a degree program or to non-degree status may normally register for no more than eight (8) hours per quarter. A person wishing to register for 9 to 10 hours must have written approval from the Graduate Chairperson of his or her academic program and from the administrative supervisor for his/her employee position. Full-time faculty and full-time administrators who obtain approval to register for 9 or 10 hours per quarter may not receive a graduate stipend. Course loads taken during breaks in regular employment, however, such as summers for 9-month faculty, will be limited only by Graduate Catalog regulations. (Attention is also directed to the stipulations regarding residency requirements as stated in the Graduate Catalog and to Ohio University Policy and Procedure 40.009.)

If a student who is currently in a graduate degree program is offered a presidential contract appointment, the situation shall be reviewed by the Associate Provost for Graduate and Research Programs and the Graduate Council at the earliest possible date. The Graduate Council shall determine whether conflict of interest or unfair competition would result from dual status as a student and a presidential contract employee which might affect academic performance and evaluation. If the Graduate Council determines that such conflict would exist, they shall inform the student that he/she may not continue in his/her graduate program if he/she accepts the presidential contract appointment.
