Periods of Employment

Most university staff employees have 12-month appointments. Many faculty and some staff have nine-month, or academic year, appointments. A few have appointments for other periods, including spring or fall semester appointments, summer appointments, or appointments for a specified period to coincide with a grant or project.

An appointment is not an employment contract. Administrative and staff employees may be terminated at any time or dismissed for cause under university procedures. See Section 10 of this handbook for further information about terminations.
