The part-time faculty member resumes his or her annual or multi-year appointment. The period of leave counts as part of the part-time faculty's appointment period; it does not extend the appointment. Upon return from an Article XVII leave, the university must offer an assignment equal to the number of course hours taught just prior to the leave and must make its best effort to assign the part-time faculty member to the courses previously taught with the same proportion of required courses. If the part-time faculty member received an appointment letter prior to requesting and being granted a leave, the university must offer him or her the same number of courses that was assigned to him or her in the appointment letter, even if that number of courses exceeds the part-time faculty member’s baseload. If he or she requested and was granted an unpaid leave before he or she was given an appointment letter, then the university is obligated to offer the part-time faculty member an assignment equal to his or her baseload. Whether pre-appointment or post-appointment, the university must make its best effort to assign the part-time faculty member to the courses previously taught with the same proportion of required courses. If insufficient courses are available, the university will pay the part-time faculty the appropriate contractual remedies.
