Conditional Offer Letter for Faculty
An offer of employment represents the culmination of the faculty hiring process in accordance with the Extending Offers of Employment to Faculty in Academic Areas policy. Before any hire can be made, the terms of the offer must be determined and an approved offer letter issued to the candidate by a designated University hiring official. The following individuals are designated hiring officials:
Hiring authority may be delegated in writing by one of these individuals with the approval of the president or the appropriate vice president. An offer issued by an individual who is not a designated hiring official is not considered binding nor is it considered to be a valid offer.
All offers of employment are conditional and are subject to the approval of the president, the executive vice president and provost, and, as required, the University's Board of Visitors.
All offer letters should contain certain elements and should conform to the standard University offer letter. While other terms and conditions may be included as part of the offer of employment, the following items must be incorporated:
Offer letters that deviate from the required information must be reviewed and approved by the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost before being issued.
Offers to Non-Tenure-Track Faculty: The designated hiring official is responsible for extending offers of employment in accordance with the policy on the Employment of Non Tenure Track Faculty, including eligibility for the Expectation of Continued Employment (ECE). The position’s ECE status must be referenced in the offer letter. Any exception to ECE eligibility in an appointment or reappointment letter must be approved in advance by the provost or his designee.
