arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Notification of all decisions regarding reappointment, nonreappointment and the award or denial of tenure of academic employees shall be in writing and signed by the campus president or designee.

(b) The notice of intention not to reappoint a probationary academic employee or not to award tenure, as the case may be, shall be mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the academic employee at his or her last known address, or the notice may be delivered to the academic employee in person who shall acknowledge receipt of the notice in writing. If such notice is delivered to the academic employee and he or she refuses to acknowledge receipt thereof, the person delivering the notice shall make and file with the campus president an affidavit of service thereof, which affidavit shall be regarded as equivalent to acknowledgment of receipt of notice.

(c) Reappointment to a succeeding academic year, and the award of tenure, may be accomplished only by notice by the president or designee. Notwithstanding any provision of this article to the contrary, no person shall be deemed to have been reappointed or to have been awarded tenure because notice is not given or received by the time or in the manner prescribed in this Article. Should it occur that no notice is received by the times prescribed in this Article, it is the duty of the academic employee concerned to make inquiry to determine the decision of the president, who shall without delay give notice in accordance with this section.
