Recognizing the close connection between effective teaching and intellectual and professional stature, the College encourages and expects scholarly or creative activity among its faculty as a component of effective teaching or as an end in itself. Since teaching is the clear emphasis at Cornell, faculty members are expected to devote appropriate time and energy to this aspect of professional activity. Extensive reading in the discipline, revision of courses when warranted, and development of new courses when appropriate to the program in a department are expected activities. In sum, faculty must attend to current developments in their field as they pertain to their pedagogical activities.
Moreover, the institution recognizes that scholarly and creative activities inside and outside of Cornell College are valuable to the individual faculty member involved and to the College as a whole. The College therefore both desires and fosters such activities and is pleased to share these opportunities with the faculty.
