Administrative/Professional staff are those appointed to academic support positions that are exempt from Civil Service by the University Civil Service Merit Board and whose primary responsibility does not include teaching or scholarly activity.
Administrative/Professional appointments shall guarantee the following notice of non-reappointment (except for designated Intercollegiate Athletic employees and those individuals on a non-continuing employment contract containing a non-renewal clause):
|Years of Consecutive Continuous Service||Notice Period|
|One year or less||3 months|
|More than one year and less than three years||6 months|
|Three years or more||12 months|
The notice periods above may be waived in cases of termination for cause.
Each Administrative/Professional appointment entails no assurance or implication, except for the provisions for notification set forth above, that it will be renewed. Exceptions to the regular requirements shall apply if there are insufficient funds to continue an appointment. Upon bona fide reduction or elimination of an internal unit or any part thereof employing Administrative/Professional personnel, the University, as soon as possible after the decision is made to reduce or eliminate the unit or part thereof, shall give notice to the individual or individuals being displaced. Such decisions will be made by the President in accordance with the regulations of the Board of Trustees.
This policy applies to appointment positions and does not affect the University's right to reassign Administrative/Professional staff at any time during the term of an employment contract.
*Non-reappointment decisions cannot be made without first consulting Human Resources at (309) 438-8311.
