Up: New Faculty Survival Guide
Previous: Getting your house in
This is an ever growing list of things that we learn as employees and
residents of IIT. Most of it can be found in the collective wisdom on campus
or in the Acts and Statues handbook, a copy of which is available
in the department office and in the library. What follows is not exhaustive,
but more of a survival handbook.
There is also the other authoritative handbook - Swami's handbook for
central government employees. As the title suggests, it is for all government
employees, but many of the rules and procedures are applicable to IIT faculty
since IIT faculty are also government employees. Every department office is
supposed to have
a copy of Swami's but it may be outdated. Swami's comes out with a revised
edition every year and it may be worth having your own copy, just to know
what all the rules look like.
