111.1 Continuing Education

 

A. Background

The Division of Continuing Education has offered academic credit and non-credit personal enrichment programs for persons living in the greater Greenville area since 1958. The Division of Continuing Education currently consists of the following programs: Undergraduate Evening Studies, Lifelong Learning, Center for Corporate and Professional Development, Bridges to a Brighter Future, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). A full description of each of these programs is available on the Furman website.

 

B. Policy

The Division of Continuing Education strives to involve tenured and probationary Furman faculty as its primary resources for program development and instruction . Faculty may be assigned to teach in the Division of Continuing Education as part of their normal load or may be allowed to teach an additional course as an overload with additional compensation.

 

C. Guidelines

1. Undergraduate Evening Studies teaching assignments are coordinated through and approved by the department chairs and the Dean of the Faculty.

2. Priorities in the selection of faculty to teach Undergraduate Evening Studies courses are as follows:  (a) tenured and probationary faculty as part of their normal load or as an overload with additional compensation; and (b) part-time faculty from the community as approved by department chairs and the Dean of the Faculty.

3. Policies regarding the amount of overload a faculty member may teach for compensation are approved by department chairs and the administration. Department chairs reserve the right to place additional limits on faculty in cases where overload teaching would interfere with assigned duties.

4. The Director of Continuing Education (See File 111.11.) must give final approval of any faculty member selected to teach in the Division of Continuing Education.

5. The Division of Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel any course in which there is insufficient enrollment or a lack of a qualified instructor.
