G-34-3.2 Tenure

(Formerly HR-9-1.2)

Central Oregon community College has granted tenure throughout its history as a means of demonstrating long-term commitments to its faculty and ensuring the protection of academic freedom. The College believes conferring tenure enhances the learning experiences of COCC students, provides stability for faculty and the larger community, and reinforces COCC's mission and values. Tenure is awarded by the Board of Directors upon recommendation by the President. The timeline for consideration for tenure is provided in the Collective Bargaining Agreement Between the Central Oregon Community College Board of Directors and the Central Oregon Community College Faculty Forum.
