2020-2021 Faculty Handbook [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

1. Message from the VPAA

Dear Colleagues,

It is a privilege to serve as the Vice President of Academic Affairs, to advocate for excellence in student learning and to champion the faculty who are dedicated to providing a relevant, rigorous, and enduring education for our students.

This Faculty Handbook serves as a valuable resource for new and continuing members of the full-time faculty of Champlain College. It documents Champlain’s collaborative approach to shared governance by articulating responsibilities for initiating and approving College policies; and it describes the roles of faculty, administration, and Board members in College operations.  It also serves as a repository for the many policies and procedures that govern and shape faculty life at our institution.

In this Handbook, you will find statements of faculty rights and responsibilities, descriptions of resources made available by the College to support faculty professional development, academic affairs policies, personnel policies especially pertinent to faculty, and select College and student academic policies.

Faculty and administrators share ongoing responsibility for ensuring that the Faculty Handbook functions as a living document as we work together to foster an academic culture that supports the professional and scholarly achievements of faculty and the success of Champlain students.



Leslie Averill, Ed.D.

Vice President for Academic Affairs
