Due to all FSU faculty, staff, and students working outside of our usual spaces during the coronavirus crisis, we understand you might feel some uncertainty. Below are some frequently-asked questions you might have during this time.
You can always reach the FDA team by emailing email@example.com.
If you are a specialized faculty member and you have not yet reached the top rank in your track, you are eligible for promotion. The decision to go up for promotion should be made between the faculty member and supervisor. Time in a visiting position may or may not count towards promotion. This is determined on a case by case basis. Please email any questions to Melissa Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. If you were scheduled for fall 2020 and would like to postpone to spring 2021 or if you have a two semester sabbatical and would like to postpone to the next academic year you may do so with approval from your department chair and/or dean. Please email approvals to Melissa Crawford at email@example.com.
During Florida’s sheltering-in-place orders, faculty writing groups will meet virtually via Zoom at the same times they met face-to-face during Spring 2020 semester.
Yes! Notify Peggy Wright-Cleveland via email of your extraordinary accomplishment (TARU award), and she will process your salary increase request.
Signed Step 1 Agreements (and any other honor policy form) should be emailed to Ann DelRossi (firstname.lastname@example.org). If students are unsure how to sign a Step 1 Agreement, they can send the faculty member an email, which can then be forwarded to Ann DelRossi (email@example.com).
Yes, you can email a completed Step 1 Agreement to the student, outlining the allegations, and request that they sign and return the Step 1 Agreement by a specific deadline. Some faculty are having Zoom meetings with students to discuss alleged violations of the Academic Honor Policy prior to emailing the Step 1 Agreement. Students who have questions about their options should contact the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although grade discrepancies should be discussed with students throughout the semester, please remind students that a formal grade appeal cannot be pursued until after final grades are released (see the appropriate academic calendar). After that time, students may utilize the Grade Appeals System.
The Academic Leadership Toolkit might be especially helpful to department chairs during this time of social isolation. It contains a calendar of administrative tasks throughout the semesters with links to important details related to academic, faculty development, and employment issues.
