Reduction in Length of Faculty Contracts

This policy governs the reduction in the length of faculty contracts in excess of two terms per year for cases where the reduction for a whole academic unit is mandated as a result of an approved planning procedure. A plan for an academic unit may exclude from reduction those faculty who are involved in essential teaching, research, administrative, or clinical services as a part of their contractual responsibilities on a year-round basis.

This policy also governs the reduction of contract length for faculty not covered by a mandated plan.

Copies of the policy are available in the Office of the Provost (412-624-4222).
