Academic and/or administrative related responsibilities amounting to an average 1/3 IWC or 7 hours per week which may include but are not limited to: coordination of lab 1.00/year sections and TA efforts for lab courses, coordinate lab staff and instructional effort for lab courses, compilation of readers or other course materials.

     *Chem 292 has an IWC of 0.4

Notes: In the case of split lecture/lab courses (i.e., Bio 140/140L), the lecture portion of the course is assigned 1 IWC and the lab portion of the course is assigned the remaining portion of the IWC. (Example: Bio 140/140L is assigned a 1.5 IWC. If the lecture and lab are taught by two different instructors, the instructor teaching the lecture is assigned 1 IWC and the instructor teaching the lab is assigned .5 IWC).
