6.1.F. Terminations and Nonrenewal

Membership in the Adjunct Clinical Faculty is a privilege, not a right or entitlement.  Membership can be terminated at any time – whether at the end of an appointment term, during an appointment term, or during a continuing term appointment – by either the Adjunct Clinical Faculty member or by the School, without the necessity of a reason. No set period of notice is required for termination or nonrenewal of an appointment.  Notice of nonrenewal or termination should be in writing from the department chair to the Adjunct Clinical Faculty member with a copy to the Vice Dean.  There are no formal grievance or appeal processes available to a member of the Adjunct Clinical Faculty who has received a notice of nonrenewal or whose appointment has been terminated, but the individual may communicate with the department chair or with the Vice Dean (or a designate) concerning the matter.
