3.3.10 Termination Notification of Faculty

Tenure-Track Appointments

Those persons who hold academic rank and who are tenure-track shall be guaranteed the following dates of notification (in the absence of a financial exigency) concerning the University's decision not to renew their appointment:

(1) Not later than March 1 of the first academic year of service, if the appointment expires at the end of the year; or, if a one-year appointment terminates during an academic year, at least three months in advance of its termination.

(2) Not later than February 1 of the second academic year of service, if the appointment expires at the end of that year; or, if an initial two-year appointment terminates during an academic year, at least six months in advance of its termination.

(3) At least twelve months before the expiration of an appointment after two or more years in the institution. A faculty appointment is deemed to expire on the last day of the calendar month in which the faculty contract or official notification of reappointment ends unless specified differently in the contract or notice of employment.

Every faculty appointment for a specific term must be accepted by the faculty member with the understanding that such an appointment entails no assurance or implication, except for the provisions for notification set forth above, that it will be renewed or that tenure will be granted. In the event there are insufficient appropriated funds to continue the appointment, notice must be given as soon as possible.

Nontenure Track Appointments

Nontenure Track appointments automatically terminate on the last day of the appointment period set forth in the contract. No additional notice is required.
