Using College Equipment is a Benefit

Use of equipment is a benefit

Faculty members have a right to use College Equipment for professional development. This is a benefit for faculty.

Is permission needed?

Faculty members who experience no financial gain from using the equipment do not need permission. If a faculty member will experience a financial gain or avoid a financial loss, they must obtain permission from the department manager in advance of using the equipment.

What is a financial gain?

A financial gain is defined as a gain of $50 or more per year (or avoiding the loss of $50 or more per calendar year).

Article 18.3 of the Main Agreement
