Faculty workload

  • Normal teaching load
    • “Normal Work Schedule. The work schedules of full-time faculty are necessarily flexible but, as a guide, the normal teaching assignment will be twelve hours per semester or its equivalent. Teaching assignments will be affected by the number of students in the classes, number of preparations, number of new preparations, amount of travel, night schedules, and other variables related to the satisfactory performance of teaching.” (page 48- PCC Faculty Manual 2019 edition)
  • Application for redefined teaching load for purposes of engaging in productive scholarship
  • Flexible Work Schedule guidelines and Request Form

USC Police Department (USCPD) – Emergency Procedures “Learn procedures for campus emergencies and what you should do to keep yourself as safe as possible.”


USCPD – Emergency Procedures for Active Shooter specifically


Carolina Alert – Students, faculty and staff should register to receive Carolina Alerts for up-to-the-moment campus safety news.

The below social media accounts are used to disseminate the same emergency alerts that are sent to the Rave Guardian app (for Columbia and all PC campuses). However, alerts are disseminated to the affected campus only, not the whole system, so if a faculty/staff member frequents more than one campus he/she should register to receive alerts for each of those campuses when registering for the Rave Guardian app, and if they have Twitter/Facebook, set to receive alerts when something is posted to those pages.

Columbia campus: Carolina Alert



Ready Carolina – Opposite Carolina Alert, the below social media accounts provide the whole Carolina community with emergency preparedness information.
