Faculty policies and guidelines

At the links below, you will find folders containing policies and guidelines relevant to each faculty category. When you click on the folder title, you will be prompted to sign in with your USC NetID. 

Please note: USC Annenberg policies are meant to complement USC-wide policies, such as the USC Faculty Handbook or the UCAPT Manual. If they were to conflict, the USC-wide policies would prevail. You can find USC-wide policies on the USC Faculty Portal.

  • For ALL faculty (part-time and full-time)
    • This folder includes documents relevant to all Annenberg School faculty, such as the Faculty Council bylaws.
  • For FULL-TIME faculty (RTPC and T/TT)
    • This folder includes documents relevant only to full-time faculty, such as RTPC faculty policies, promotion and tenure standards, guidelines and timelines for promotion, the rights and privileges of emeriti faculty, mid-probationary review guidelines.

These folders are active folders and will be regularly updated as documents are created and finalized. If you have any questions or cannot find something you believe should be there, please do not hesitate to contact your respective school’s Faculty Affairs Coordinator or the Associate Dean for Faculty.
