The Full-Time Instructors, Lecturers, and Researchers typically serve for 1-year, 2-year, or 3-year terms. These terms can be extended based on the needs of the University. As the University continues its development, its needs also change in time. Therefore, outstanding performance does not guarantee extension of the contract of a full-time Instructor, Lecturer, or Researcher.

The contract extension evaluation for Full-Time Instructors, Lecturers, and Researchers is the evaluation of the cumulative output of the annual evaluations. No additional document is needed from the Full-time Instructor, Lecturer, or Researcher for this evaluation.

Dean/Director prepares a report that evaluates both the need for extending the contract and also the cumulative performance of the faculty member.

Each individual contract extension case is discussed and evaluated extensively at a face to face meeting of the relevant Dean/Director with the President, the VPAA, and the VPRD. Prior to the meeting, the evaluation of the Dean/Director is shared with the President, VPAA and VPRD.

President subsequently makes a final evaluation based on the cumulative annual report, in consideration of the evaluation of the Dean/Director, and the discussion with the Dean/ Director and Vice Presidents.
