Emergency & Retirement Replacements
Emergency replacement refers to the situation where a full-time position is vacated unexpectedly. Retirements, resignations, and deaths do not necessarily constitute an emergency. Emergency and retirement replacements require the following to happen:
A Faculty Position Request Form must be completed and submitted to the FHPC through the division and the Dean. The faculty Position Request Form will include an explanation about the need for continuation of the vacated position as well as the rationale about the timing of the hiring action.
The FHPC will hold a meeting after the Dean forwards the request to the FHPC.
Based on the data provided in the form, the FHPC will decide by consensus whether or not to recommend immediate replacement of the position, or whether to place the application in the general pool for the following year. Recommendations will go to the Academic Senate. If there are any disputes raised by the Academic Senate, the FHPC will reconvene to review the concerns. The FHPC will either reaffirm the recommendation(s) or make changes considering the Academic Senate’s concerns. In either case, the FHPC reports its decision to the Senate and forwards its recommendation along with a written description of Academic Senate concerns to the LPC President’s office.
