About Service at CWU
Faculty service contributes academic and professional expertise and effort to the university community, to professional communities of scholars, and to the citizenry. As a faculty member you can use your expertise and passion to positively impact your working environment and the regional and national landscape in your field.

Service Workload: A typical faculty workload will have around 7% (3 wlu) dedicated to service. The Article 15.3.3 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the United Faculty of Central and CWU defines three types of service: public service, university service, and professional service. Appendix A of the Collective Bargaining Agreement provides guidelines for determining workload units for service.
Reappointment, Tenure, Promotion, and Post-Tenure Review: Faculty are expected to serve the university, public and their profession according to the University, college, and department criteria. University and college criteria can be found on the Provost’s website under Faculty Resources.
Please contact the Associate Provost for Undergraduate and Faculty Affairs if something you need is missing so it can be added
