Termination of employment
In contrast with discharge, "termination of employment" is unrelated to disciplinary penalties.
Section 605 of The Code of the Board of Governors and Section IX of UNCW's Policies of Academic Freedom and Tenure state that the employment of faculty members with permanent tenure or of faculty members appointed to a fixed term may be terminated by the university because of:
Appeal from termination
A faculty member who alleges that the termination was arbitrary or capricious may appeal the decision to the Faculty Hearings Committee, in accordance with the procedure specified in Section IX.B.6 of Policies of Academic Freedom and Tenure.
