3.1 Instructors of Record

According to Academic Senate Regulation 750.A, “Only regularly appointed officers of instruction holding appropriate instructional titles may have substantial responsibility for the content and conduct of courses which are approved by the Academic Senate.”

On the Berkeley campus, officers of instruction who have responsibility for the content and conduct of a course are commonly known as “instructors of record.” One or more instructors of record are assigned to each course being taught. All instructors of record must be faculty members, or approved by the Committee on Courses of Instruction to be an instructor of record, and are individually responsible for submitting final grades to the Office of the Registrar by the specified deadline.

In this and the following sections, “instructor of record” and “instructor” are used synonymously.
