Historical Note:

The faculty of Centenary College of Louisiana and their responsibilities are described in the college’s faculty handbook (online edition accessed 2019 January 15).  “The faculty consists of those persons serving full time as professors, associate professors, assistant professors, instructors, and lecturers (including those in such ranks, but not engaged in teaching); the President of the College; and Provost and Dean of the College” (Faculty Handbook, Section 17.1).  “The faculty, with the President and the Board of Trustees, has the power and responsibility to govern and conduct the affairs of the College, to supervise the academic program of the College, and to approve candidates for degrees in accordance with the charter and bylaws of the College” (Faculty Handbook, Section 17.3).

The Statutes of Centenary College of Louisiana published in 1856 provide insight into the faculty and their responsibilities during that time period.  The faculty consisted of the president, professors, and tutors; this included those teaching in Centenary’s college as well as the preparatory department (Statutes, Chapter 1, 1st).  The faculty arranged students into classes, taught classes, and gave student examinations (Statutes, Chapters 2 and 3).  In addition, the faculty were responsible for handling cases of student discipline (Statutes, Chapter 7).  The faculty met on a weekly basis during the academic year, which lasted from approximately September to July.
