Removal for Cause


The President of the University, in consultation with the Dean and Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, may remove a faculty member for cause without regard to the faculty evaluation schedule. “For cause” may include any or all of the following:

  • Illegal activity
  • Bona fide financial exigency
  • Abolition of the faculty member’s discipline or department
  • Action inconsistent with the University goal of maintaining fairness with regard to sex, race, religion, national origin, and individual disabilities
  • Professional incompetence
  • Gross personal or professional misconduct
  • Other actions by a faculty member that are detrimental to the goals and missions of the University and which require prompt removal

Faculty members who believe that a decision has been wrongfully made in their case may request a hearing as described in this Handbook.
