Faculty Handbook

The Jacksonville State University faculty handbook is the result of a collaborative effort between members of the Faculty Senate, the faculty at large, and the Academic Affairs leadership team. It is meant to guide faculty through their careers at JSU and help them navigate through many of the complex policies and procedures in place at the university.  This handbook is housed on the Academic Affairs webpage and chapters will be periodically updated by the Faculty Handbook Committee as policies and procedures are revised. Policies that apply to all employees are found in the Policies and Procedures Manual housed under the Finance and Administration webpage. This handbook is not to be construed as a contract of employment or a promise of future or indefinite employment.

While the current handbook is undergoing revisions in Summer 2024, you may use the Archival Copy of the June 2023 Handbook to quickly look up policies using the old numbering/organization system.
