TCU Faculty & Staff Handbook

Purpose

The Handbook for Texas Christian University Faculty and Staff is prepared annually as a ready reference for answers to most questions concerning the organization, philosophy, policies and procedures of the University. It is not, however, meant to be all-inclusive. More precise and detailed information may be secured from appropriate personnel and/or publications.

The provisions herein are current only at the time of publication and, with the exception of the policy relating to tenure, may be reviewed, amended, or revoked following reasonable opportunity for consultation with the segment(s) of the University affected by proposed changes.

Even though materials for this handbook were submitted to University officials for verification, the chance for errors remains. If errors are found, please notify in writing the office of the Vice Chancellor for Marketing & Communication.
