Faculty Handbook


The West Virginia University Faculty Handbook provides general information about the University and its programs, with an emphasis on those policies and procedures that affect faculty. For more detailed information, the handbook directs readers to resources on the University's web pages.

In addition to the overviews and web references found in the handbook, faculty will also find useful information in the University catalogs, the West Virginia University Online Campus Directory, and college or school publications.

The handbook is subject to change by West Virginia University Board of Governors, University administrators, and the faculty. It is for informational purposes and is not intended to be a contract.

For questions or suggestions for revisions to the handbook, please email The Provost's Office and the Associate Provost for Academic Personnel, are charged with keeping the faculty handbook current. The handbook will be reviewed on an annual basis and revisions will be made as needed.
