Date Adopted:October 26, 1995

Officers and senior administrators (as those terms are defined in Board of Trustees Policy 202—Appointment of College Employees through the President’s Authority) may be employed “at will” or on terms of up to two years in duration. Managers with a job classification lower then senior administrator are employed “at will.”

Reason for Policy

This policy replaces the language in Policy 449: Contracts for Managerial Employees/Initial Appointment and Multi-year and updates the employment relationship between the College, its officers, senior administrators, and managers. The revised policy (a) eliminates the annual reappointment process, (b) converts managers and certain senior administrators to “at will” employment, (c) adjusts the current College practice of providing officers and certain senior administrators with employment arrangements of up to two years, and (d) add an “at will” employment alternative for officers and senior administrators.

To Whom Does the Policy Apply

Officers, senior administrators, managers
