5.K Non-reappointment of Instructional Faculty

When a decision is made not to reappoint a member of the regular instructional faculty, the faculty member is notified as soon as possible, but in any event, not later than the minimum time period set forth in SPG 201.88. These guidelines also apply in the case of a decision not to recommend tenure. Teaching appointments for supplemental instructional faculty (defined in section 5.C.3 “Lecturers”) are considered terminal appointments and notice of non-reappointment is not required. See also section 6.F "Non-reappointment of Tenure-Track Faculty."
