Guidance for Rehiring Laid Off or Non-Renewed Career Faculty Positions

These guidelines aim to help clarify the options and requirements associated with (re)hiring Career faculty who have been non-renewed by the university. If you need more information on non-renewal or renewal of Career faculty, please visit the Academic Affairs website.

When reviewing these guidelines, it is important to recognize the differences between a position and a person – whether a position is appropriately career or pro tem is dependent on the nature of the position and whether there is ongoing need for the position. Additionally, there is no mandatory preference for rehiring based on seniority. A department or program should consider its programmatic and pedagogical needs in deciding which faculty member to rehire.
