    • Part-time faculty cannot be the sole instructor of record; they can only serve as "Participating faculty" (i.e., they would be with a full-time faculty member).
    • In the role of participating faculty, they can only teach the equivalent of 2 credit hours (5.5 standard hours worked).
    • Additional hours for travel and course administration up to 19.25 standard hours per week is allowed. 
    • The maximum number of hours a part-time faculty can teach plus travel plus additional administrative duties while serving on a study aboard is 19.25 standard hours per week.

 

    • Any time spent actually working or representing KSU at the conference/meeting 

    • Travel time to a different work site from their normal work site, to the extent it exceeds their normal commute time (e.g., if we send someone to Macon, then the additional driving time beyond their normal commute is worktime);

      Travel from one work site to another during a normal work day (e.g., From Kennesaw campus to Marietta campus for a meeting);

      Time during normal work hours when employee is away on business, regardless of the day of the week (e.g., if an employee normally works 8am to 5pm with an hour for lunch on Monday through Friday, then the eight work hours from 8am to 5pm while the employee is on a business trip are work hours, whether they fall on weekdays or weekends, and whether the person is actually working); Those hours should exclude: 

      • Normal Commutes (travel from home to work and back). 
      • Travel time outside of normal working hours (e.g., if an employee normally works from 8am to 5pm and they are on a flight that doesn't land until 8pm, then those extra three hours are not work hours unless they are actually working, such as working on their laptop on the plane).
