Faculty Handbook

The Lewis & Clark College Faculty Handbook describes employment policies, benefits, privileges, and related operating procedures. The information is published here to provide a framework to faculty for understanding the standard practices of Lewis & Clark and for exercising their duties and obligations as faculty members.

While faculty should find the handbook useful as a guide to employment policies at the College, this document is not a contract of employment. The contract of employment is embodied in the individual faculty member’s letter of employment.

This handbook describes policies and procedures in effect as of fall 2016. However, from time to time, policies and procedures may need to be modified or revised, or new policies developed, in a process consistent with the College’s tradition of shared governance.

Some general employee and institutional policies may appear here in an abbreviated form. Read the complete policies text.

Each faculty member is responsible to become familiar with the contents of the handbook. This handbook supersedes all previous versions of Lewis & Clark faculty handbooks
