2.3.4 Contracts and Employment (Appointment) Letters

Certain administrative officers will receive contracts for the fiscal period of July 1 through June 30.  Employee contracts, as well as all amendments, revisions, additions, and reductions to employee contracts, are subject to approval by the Board.  All other staff personnel will receive appointment letters and shall be at-will employees.  At-will employees shall be reviewed annually in coordination with the fiscal period of July 1 through June 30.  Such employment will not have a definite term of one year nor will it be considered a contract of employment.  At-will employees may be terminated or choose to leave the University with 30 days notice (or less where cause for termination exists).  Nothing in this handbook or the appointment letters shall alter the at-will employment relationship, which exists in the absence of a properly executed definite-term written contract.
