The Faculty Guide is intended for all faculty of The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). Its purpose is to provide summary information about the regulations, policies, procedures and concepts which guide faculty duties and privileges. It is not intended to be a rule book for faculty, nor is it intended to be absolutely complete in its coverage. It should instead provide a framework for functioning within the university and knowledge of where to find detailed information about rules which govern faculty activities.
This guide is only available on the Internet. Rather than including excerpts from various sources, the guide provides direct links to laws, policies, and other pertinent information. Sites frequently referenced in the guide or containing additional documentation include:
