Signing of Faculty Contracts
Section 803.1202 of the Board of Regents' Policy Manual states, in part, as follows: The institutions of the University System shall use the appropriate official contract form approved by the Board of Regents. Failure to sign and return such contracts within the time period specified therein may be construed as an abandonment of employment rights. Department heads will deliver contracts on the day of receipt, if possible, to those faculty members who are employed at the time (Summer Semester) the contracts are being dispersed. Receipt of a contract from the department head by a faculty member must be acknowledged in writing. Faculty members should return their signed contract to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs during the time period specified in the contract. Faculty members who are not going to be employed at the time contracts are to be dispersed must make prior arrangements (during Spring Semester) with the Vice President for Academic Affairs for the signing of their contracts.
