Faculty Justifications and Substantive Change: What's It All About?
KSU is required to document and justify that each faculty member is qualified to teach assigned courses. I will provide best practices for writing justifications for faculty whose teaching assignments are based on qualifications other than traditional academic credentials. KSU is also required to notify SACSCOC of any proposed substantive changes in accordance with SACSCOC Substantive Change policy and, when necessary, obtain approval prior to the initiation of the changes. I will discuss common substantive changes at KSU, the steps for addressing these changes, and implications for unreported substantive changes.
