Appendix N: Baruch College Workload Credit in Executive Degree and International Master's Programs

The parties agree to a five-year pilot program, beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year and continuing through the end of the 2023-2024 academic year, as follows:

In the Baruch College executive master’s degree, dual master’s degree and international executive master’s degree cohort programs listed below, in which instruction during the summer annual leave period as defined in Section 14.1 of the collective bargaining agreement is an intrinsic part of the program, tenured and certificated full-time faculty members who agree to teach courses during the summer annual leave period may elect to receive workload credit under Appendix A of the collective bargaining agreement or to be paid at the appropriate professorial hourly rate for such teaching contact hours during summer annual leave, subject to approval by their department chair. Members of the teaching faculty who receive workload credit for teaching contact hours during the period of summer annual leave shall receive no additional compensation for such teaching contact hours.

For purposes of managing the annual undergraduate teaching contact hour workload under Appendix A, teaching contact hours during the summer annual leave period for which workload credit is received shall be considered part of the annual workload in the academic year in which they occur; i.e., in the academic year starting with the previous Fall semester, unless the faculty member is in his/her final year of the three-year workload averaging period, in which case the workload credit for teaching during the summer annual leave period may be considered part of the annual workload in the following academic year. The workload credit received for such courses shall be identical to the workload credit that would have been received if such courses had been taught during the regular academic year.

The parties will meet and negotiate over inclusion of additional programs during the period of the pilot program, should any such programs be created by the college. It is the intention of the parties that such newly created programs be included in the pilot to the extent they comply with the criteria above.
