Letters of Non-Renewal
Officers of Instruction
A full time non-tenured officer of instruction (OOI) whose appointment will not be renewed beyond its stated term is entitled to clear and unambiguous notice of non-renewal in writing. Such notice may not be contingent upon any subsequent decision regarding the faculty member, such as the outcome of a tenure review or an evaluation for reappointment in a non-tenured rank.
Full time OOIs on tenure track
