7.1.L. Terminations and Nonrenewal

An Instructor may be separated from employment prior to the planned termination date of his or her appointment as set forth in Administrative Guide Memos and 2.1.17. Generally, such termination may be based on a change in programmatic need (including budgetary considerations) or for just cause, when satisfactory performance ceases. Proper notice should be given in all circumstances, normally 90 days for programmatic reasons and 30 days for non-programmatic reasons.

As noted above, although continued affiliation in the form of a reappointment may occur, there is no entitlement to such action at the end of a term, and it is not automatic. It is expected that discussions between an Instructor and his or her supervisor will be held well in advance of the appointment end date regarding the possibility, if any, of renewal.
