This Faculty Handbook is not a contract. It is a collection of policies and procedures that govern action uniquely pertaining to the Auburn University faculty. Additions, deletions, and modifications to any portion of this handbook must be approved by the Auburn Board of Trustees or their designee, following a recommendation from the University Senate.
University policies that apply to all categories of employment at Auburn University—faculty, administrative and professional, and staff—are not included in the Faculty Handbook. Faculty members are reminded that these policies apply to them and that it is their responsibility to consult other sources for policies of general application to all employees of Auburn University.
