2:050 English Proficiency
|Austin Peay State
English language proficiency is expected for new faculty hires that engage students, such as faculty, adjuncts, graduate teaching assistants, lab managers, advisors, coordinators, directors, and faculty recommended for tenure.
English language proficiency is considered a necessary medium for student learning in a predominantly English-speaking classroom within the United States. Therefore, APSU faculty who engage in instruction delivery and/or have impacts on student success at APSU should have excellent English mastery in spoken and written forms. This policy is intended to support student success while also providing guidance for APSU faculty whose non-native language is English.
