PRR Intro pageIntroduction

The foundation for the Professional Rights and Responsibilities of Faculty Members and Roles and Professional Responsibilities of Academic Leaders was first developed by the faculty at CU Boulder in the early 1980s. The PRR describes the professional standards faculty members are expected to maintain and provides a mechanism for addressing allegations that a faculty member has failed to meet those standards.

  • The PRR comprises the procedures of this policy and applies to anyone classified as faculty, including tenured, tenure-track, instructional, research, and clinical faculty. Please see the preamble for more details on the application of the document, plus types of official and working titles.
