The purpose of this handbook is to

  • gather together in usable form the University of Illinois procedures and policies that pertain to executive officers in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences;

  • collect, publicize and clarify the College’s own policies that explain or supplement those of the University.

Our effort is to provide a convenient single reference for executive officers.

In addition to the information contained here, the following sites provide valuable resources and guidance:
University of Illinois Statutes
UIC Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs
UIC Faculty Handbook
Faculty Labor Agreement: Tenure System Faculty
Faculty Labor Agreement: Non-Tenure System Faculty
Graduate Employee Organization (GEO) Labor Agreement
LAS Bylaws

Since the policies and procedures here are subject to change, we will revise this handbook periodically. Executive officers and members of their staffs are encouraged to send suggestions for revisions and updates to Agnes Herget.
