The Faculty and Professional Staff Handbook is a source of useful information about the college. It contains information about SUNY Oswego, the State University of New York and its policies, the availability of various college facilities and services, and other information of general concern to faculty and professional staff members.

No handbook of this nature can anticipate all contingencies, nor can it answer all questions which may arise. Information about matters not covered in the handbook may be obtained directly from the appropriate college office, publication or website. While the information contained herein is intended to be helpful and authoritative, it should not be regarded as a complete statement of the rights and responsibilities of the faculty and professional staff.

While every attempt has been made to offer the most current information possible in this handbook, policies and procedures are continually subject to change. Such changes will be made to this document as they occur.

This handbook is prepared in accordance with Article IX, Title A, Section 3, of the Policies of the Board of Trustees, which charges the Chief Administrative Officer of each college with responsibility for the publication of a handbook providing essential information concerning the college. Policies and procedures discussed in this handbook are subject to, and in no instance alter, the Policies of the Board of Trustees. All policies are subject to change by the Trustees and other appropriate bodies.
