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 (or other primary assignment) and commitment to the College and the community expected of COCC professional staff.

Completion of five probationary years 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.
