G-34-3.2.1 Awarding of Tenure

(Formerly HR-9-1.2.1)

Tenure is awarded to those faculty members who have, during their probationary years, demonstrated the promise of the overall excellence in instruction (and other primary assignment activities) and commitment to the College and the community expected of COCC professional staff. Faculty members must have a complete personnel file in the Human Resources (HR) office to be considered for tenure.

Completion of five probationary years while maintaining a complete file does not automatically result in the awarding of tenure.

Employment while on the Notice of Appointment, or contract other than regular probationary contract, does not accrue time toward tenure unless specified in writing.
