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 route through the UNT System Office
of General Counsel. The Dean should copy the Provost and VP of Administration so that they are also aware of
the request prior in case there are any questions that come up during legal review.
