Regents' Policy Manual - Section 6.9: Employment Contracts

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996


This policy applies to certain administrative employees of the University.


Certain administrative positions within the University are characterized by a level of responsibility such that the University shall reserve the discretion to renew or not renew the periodic employment contracts of these administrators when their contracts expire. The President is authorized to designate these positions from time to time.


The President shall adopt an administrative policy governing the terms and conditions of employment of these administrators and recognizing the discretion of the University to renew or not renew their employment contracts upon the contracts' expiration. The policy shall provide that failure to renew the contracts of administrators who are also faculty members shall not affect the rights and privileges of these administrators as faculty members. The policy shall also apply to contracts of athletic coaches.
