librarian to continue to fulfill the librarian’s appointment duties during the second year of the two-year
appointment, or the College may terminate employment immediately and pay the librarian a lump sum
equal to the salary and retirement benefits contributions, if any, that would be due during the second year
of the appointment, and reimburse the librarian for the actual, out-of-pocket cost of health insurance

III.A.4. Full-Time Term Contracts (Non-tenured; Non-tenure track)
The terms of the full-time term contract shall govern the relationship between the College and
the particular Faculty member. However, the following is a general description of the nature of a

offered a new two-year appointment. In the case of non-reappointment, the Provost shall inform the
Faculty member by September 1 of the second year of the two-year contract that the faculty member will
not be given a new two-year contract and therefore is beginning the final year of appointment. The
grievance procedure provided below in III.B.5. is not available and shall not apply to Faculty members
with full-time term contracts except in the case of the College’s decision to cancel the second year of the
term contract for cause. However, in the event of a termination for cause prior to the end of contract
term, the Faculty member with a term contract may use the III.B.7. review procedure.
In the case of non-reappointment, at the discretion of the Provost, the College may either allow the faculty
