Non-Renewal Notices and Terminal Faculty Contracts

First contact Faculty Affairs before beginning the process.

1.  Please begin by reading the Faculty Bylaws Article VII-Reappointment of Faculty regarding notification
periods and other guidelines for non-renewal notices/terminal contracts for faculty.

2.  Department Chair should route the draft notice to the Dean for the Dean to review and then route through the
UNT System Office of General Counsel.  The Dean should copy the Provost so that he is aware of the
request prior in case there are any questions that arise during legal review.

3.  The final non-renewal notice to the faculty member should always include a copy to the Office of the Provost
and the Office of Faculty Affairs.

Please note:  All notices must go through legal review and approval.
