Around Campus: Workload Policy in Business School

In keeping with the practice of Council members reporting regularly on key issues from individual schools, Jeffrey Busse spoke to the Council about the Goizueta Business School’s newly adopted “Workload Policy” for tenured associate professors. Implemented beginning fall 2013, the policy formalizes the expectation that within ten years of their promotion to associate, tenured business professors will progress toward full professor. “If an individual does not get there within ten years, then the school would expect that person to contribute to the school in ways beyond research,” Busse explained. “[The assumption is that] if you don’t reach full tenure within ten years in most cases it’s because your research has not met a level associated with full tenure, so you would be expected to contribute with additional teaching and/or service.” The policy is presented in full in the Goizueta online faculty handbook.
