Handbook for Department Chairs 

Updated April 25, 2020 

Department Chairs at Austin Peay have a vital role in the University’s day-to-day operation and in its long-term mission.  Because of the varied nature of the many APSU departments, a complete, one-size-fits-all handbook is not possible.  This document is an attempt at placing in a central location a number of key resources for functions common to most departments.  It is important to note that this document is not a policy manual.  No statement in this handbook is policy by virtue of its appearance in the handbook.  This handbook does contain links to policies, which are always the final word on the matters they address. 

This handbook is updated annually. If you have any suggestions for improving this handbook, please contact the Vice Provost and Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Handbook authored by Dr. Nell Rayburn, Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Edited by Dr. Lynne S. Crosby, Vice Provost and Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs
