The Baruch College Faculty Handbook
updated on 9/16/04
Involvement in the education of
our students through meaningful advisement and counsel is
a vital goal. Faculty availability for students around the
time of a class to review or elaborate on topics discussed
— even to discuss why a student received a particular grade
— is a necessary component to a good education. Informing
students of office hours and being sure to be available during
those hours also is necessary.
- A rule of thumb is to schedule at least one office hour
on each teaching day; many faculty members also indicate
on their syllabi that they are availabe by appointment.
- Faculty members should post office hours outside their
offices and be available during those hours.
- Adjunct faculty teaching six or more hours in a given
semester receive pay for an additional hour per week. Use
of that hour as a regular office hour is possible; this
should be discussed with the department chair.
