The first edition of this Faculty Information handbook was prepared by Professors Barbara R. Cole, Michael W. Friedlander, Ronald M. Levin and Gerhild Scholz Williams as a convenient reference guide to entities and policies that affect our lives at Washington University.
This 2010 edition has been updated to include additional and modified policies. This handbook is not meant to be exhaustive; instead, it assembles the organizational information, rules, and statements that we believe to be of broadest importance to faculty and academic administrators on this campus. The introductory material are not statements of University policy (except where policies are quoted) and are intended only as an aid to locating pertinent resources and policies. All of the items in this compilation are of University-wide concern; supplemental or modifying policies established by individual schools are not included.
These policies may be changed at any time, in some but not all cases subject to faculty approval. While this compilation will be updated as the need arises, you may consult with the Office of the Provost if you wish to be sure that you have the most recent copy of any policy.
We hope you will find this handbook useful.
