This Fall 2021 - Spring 2024 Faculty Handbook is not a contract of employment and is not intended to supersede any provisions of the College of Western Idaho policy manual as it relates to your status as an employee of the College of Western Idaho. All provisions of this handbook shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with this paragraph, and in the event of any irreconcilable inconsistencies, the terms of the College of Western Idaho Policies and Procedures manual shall prevail.

Purpose

The CWI Faculty Handbook is an important part of the Participatory Governance structure at College of Western Idaho. The purpose of this handbook is to clarify the roles, responsibilities, and rights of Faculty members of the College of Western Idaho. This handbook is maintained and approved by the Faculty Senate of CWI, with final approval from the College Provost. The Faculty Handbook is reviewed and revised every three academic years, with the next revision date in 2024.

Other important resources for faculty include the CWI Board Governance Policies, CWI Policies and Procedure Manual, the Instruction Policies and Procedures Manual, and Faculty Evaluation and Promotion Procedures Handbook, and the CWI Student Handbook. The CWI Policies and Procedure Manual contains all established institutional policies. CWI’s Instruction Policies and Procedures Manual includes answers, instructions and/or links to the most frequently asked questions about day-to-day administrative and instructional information needed by new and returning faculty. The Faculty Evaluation and Promotion Procedures Handbook contains information about how to conduct evaluations and apply for promotion. The Student Handbook contains policies governing student behavior, including corrective action and grade appeals.

In the event that any of these documents is in conflict with the Board Governance Policies and the Policy and Procedure Manual, the Board Governance Policies and Policy and Procedures Manual will be the correct standard. In case of conflict between the remaining documents, the bodies responsible for each document will collaborate to resolve the conflicting information.
