Faculty Handbook

The Faculty Manual was designed with two purposes in mind: 1) To orient new faculty to Algoma University; and 2) Provide information that is important for faculty success on an ongoing basis.

Contained within these pages is information regarding departments, teaching, policies and procedures, resources, university personnel and more. Please note that this manual is intended for use as a general reference rather than the official source of University policies and guidelines.
