1.3 Additional Resources for CSM Policies and Procedures

CSM Faculty Handbook:

The Board of Trustees is the legal employer of all employees at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM).   The Board, which defines all exempt CSM employees as faculty, sets forth the general terms and conditions of faculty employment in the CSM Faculty Handbook, and especially within Part II of that Handbook.  The most current version of the Faculty Handbook is maintained on the Academic Policies web site at https://inside.mines.edu/POGO-Academic.

Each academic department is responsible for maintaining an up-to-date copy of the Faculty Handbook and informing department faculty/staff of its location.
