The Faculty Handbook

We are in the process of editing and reorganizing the old faculty handbook so that it becomes a more effective resource for faculty, staff, and administrators. Read why.

You can access the  faculty handbook through the fully linked table of contents below or through the pull-down menu at the top.

Much of the new faculty handbook involved simple cut-and-pasting from the old faculty handbook and a greater reliance on (working!)  links to documents and policies that are maintained elsewhere.

Please email deanoffaculty@cornell.edu should you have questions or suggestions that relate to this editing project.
