In response to a university mandate and general faculty dissatisfaction with work assignments, faculty developed a faculty work load formula. The authors discuss the development of the teaching portion of the formula. Implementation of the formula and publication of teaching work loads has resulted in greater awareness of other's responsibilities, improved faculty morale, increased accountability, and a greater sense of control. Some problem areas are also discussed.
