The Georgia Southern University faculty senate has organized a workload committee composed of faculty from all across the university due to its increased size post-consolidation.

This committee exists to develop university-wide guidelines for teaching, research and service workloads, faculty senate chair Dustin Anderson said.

Universities of this size have detailed workload policies with clear expectations for the standard university workload.

“We’re trying to move away from one-size-fits-all practices, many that were defaulted to during consolidation, and this committee is part of that effort,” Anderson said.

As the workload committee starts to work and share their findings, more information will become available on the potential changes for the university.

An exact date has not been set, but the committee will propose its policy to the senate later in the semester.
