Termination of Fixed-Term Faculty Members

Notice of non-renewal (termination) of a Fixed-Term I faculty member employed in the College of Medicine should be made as early as possible but should provide at least 30 days’ notice.

As contracts end June 30, this would require notice before June 1. Notice must be in writing from the Department Chair.

Fixed-Term I extensions may be requested by the Department Chair if this notification deadline is missed or when funding is available to extend the position beyond June 30 but not for an entire year. The position would then terminate at the end of the extension period.

Requests for extensions should be submitted to the College of Medicine Office of Human Resources, with a copy to the Office of Faculty Affairs. Requests should specify the term of the extension, including termination date.

A sample fixed-term non-renewal notification letter is available by contacting the Office of Faculty Affairs.
