Administrative Appointments - Terms/Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ADMINISTRATIVE APPOINTMENTS

Vice presidents, deans, chairs, program directors, and heads of administrative departments are appointed by the president and continue in office at the pleasure of the president. In normal cases, such appointments are for a specified term, regularly from three to five years. Appointments take effect on July 1 and continue until June 30 of the year of termination.

Special Provisions of Appointment (associate status, release from contract)

a. Associate Appointment

i. Purpose
Appointment with associate status is designed to allow particular individuals to reduce their teaching responsibilities at the College for limited periods without interrupting their normal employment. The reasons for requesting associate status may include, for example, the need to fulfill familial obligations, the wish to engage more fully in scholarly or artistic projects (or other forms of professional development), or the wish to reduce one's teaching obligations for a few years before retirement.

Consulting and Outside Employment Policies

External consulting arrangements by faculty members which will enhance the individual's professional competence and/or provide a community service are encouraged, provided such arrangements do not interfere with the primary responsibilities of the individual to the College. The exercise of good judgment of all concerned is essential in determining what the proper balance of outside commitments against the individual's obligations to the College may be in each case.

Appeal Procedures

a. Appeal of Non-reappointment

i. Grounds for Appeal
A faculty member who has received notice of non-reappointment may appeal that judgment on the basis of either procedural errors or violation of academic freedom that may have influenced the academic department or program, and/or the Reappointments Committee or the Promotions Committee, and/or the provost (in the case of first and contract reviews) or the president (in the case of tenure reviews).
