Most of the 236 instructors who received notices of non-renewal last semester will keep their jobs at least into the spring, said Eric Monday, vice chancellor for Finance and Administrative Services.
“The vast majority will see their notices of non-renewal extended,” Monday said.
The University employs roughly 400 instructors or non-tenure-track faculty. Of those, 236 are paid solely with state dollars. Because the state has drastically cut its funding to the University, those 236 have received notices of non-renewal.
Monday said Thursday that the extension lasts until Aug. 14, 2011.
Monday said the specific number and names of instructors have yet to be determined because the department heads and Human Resource Management are still “working out the details.”
