Faculty Handbook

The VCU Faculty Handbook contains information about the university, its campus and the surrounding community. The VCU Faculty Handbook is not a complete guide to academics, research and other services, but is intended as a reference point to orient new and continuing faculty to the university and provide additional sources for information. 

The Handbook is updated on a yearly basis by the VCU Office of Faculty Affairs.
