TEACHING AT ANOTHER INSTITUTION WHILE IN FULL TIME SERVICE
As a matter of University policy, full-time members of the faculty may teach only at New York University during the period of their regular teaching assignments, normally September to May. Teaching at other institutions during the academic year may be undertaken only in the most unusual of circumstances, and must be duly approved by the Dean of the Faculty and the President. A recommendation is approved only when such service will alleviate an unexpected problem at a neighboring institution (illness, sudden departure, etc.), or when the experience will clearly contribute to the professional development of a colleague. Outside teaching assignments must be limited to no more than one day a week and are only granted under the condition that the arrangement is temporary. Probationary faculty will generally not be permitted to undertake these assignments, as an overload may adversely affect their progress towards tenure.
Such requests must be accompanied by the Chair's endorsement and include assessment of impact on both the department's teaching program and on the colleague's development, and by a letter (Chair-to-Chair or Dean-to Dean) from the hiring institution which requests permission to approach the NYU colleague.
