B3: Terms of Appointment: Contracts,
Evaluations, Salaries And Promotions

a: Contracts

The contract year for faculty begins on an annually appointed date and extends for nine months.

The teaching faculty contract covers teaching and other faculty responsibilities for the academic year (fall and spring semesters) and the normal scholarly activity that is required in the summer as preparation for the academic year.

Faculty members who teach in one or more of the summer sessions receive additional stipends. Certain faculty members with year-round administrative responsibilities may receive a contract based on an eleven-month work period.

Reappointment of a faculty member is by contract letter from the Provost by March 15, for the period of the following academic year.  The copy is to be signed and returned to the Provost no later than April 15.
