Work and Life Resources Available to Faculty

fretwellUNC Charlotte Academic Affairs has gathered a wide array of resources to assist faculty in acclimating to the UNC Charlotte environment.

The Dual Career Couples Employment Assistance Program has been jointly developed by the Office of the Provost, the University Career Center, and the Department of Human Resources to address some of the special employment needs and concerns of dual career couples. This program is designed to provide partners with the tools and information resources needed to support their search for suitable employment. Spouses and domestic partners of tenure-track faculty, senior academic and administrative officers, and professional (FLSA-exempt) staff who are recruited from outside the Charlotte-Metropolitan area are eligible to participate in the Program for up to one year.

Faculty also may find helpful the Full-Time Faculty Handbook, which can be found on the Academic Affairs website. Information is available on these topics:

  • History and Governance
  • Employment at UNC Charlotte
  • Teaching at UNC Charlotte
  • Academic Regulations and Procedures/Tenure Policies
  • University Resources
  • Academic Support for Students

Research and Economic Development at UNC Charlotte is committed to providing a nourishing climate in which faculty research, creative, and service activities will flourish. Its mission is to support faculty with services that advance their professional development, help faculty secure funding, assist with project management, and represent their interests inside and outside the University. The Office of Institutional Research is the official reporting organization to external agencies, including but not limited to the Office of the President.

National Clearinghouse on Academic Worklife (NCAW)
“The National Clearinghouse on Academic Worklife (NCAW) provides resources to help faculty, graduate students, administrators and higher education researchers understand more about all aspects of modern academic work and related career issues, including tenure track and non tenure track appointments, benefits, climate and satisfaction, work/life balance, and policy development.”

Balancing Family & Academic Work
The AAUP's efforts to address the special challenge of making academic careers more compatible with participation in family life proceed from the Statement of Principles on Family Responsibilities and Academic Work (2001). To encourage implementation of the policies and practices set forth in that document, the AAUP has developed this website as a resource for faculty and institutions.
