Non-tenured and Subvened Members of the Faculty:
Faculty members employed by Dartmouth College who were hired into the Tenure-track/Tenure Faculty Line may also be provided central subvention for salary and benefits (compensation). Such individuals who have not been awarded tenure and who are not meeting expectations for recovering compensation from qualified sources are entitled to notification of that central support being terminated (Subappendix E).
It is important to note that meeting financial expectations is a criterion for academic reappointment and advancement, but it is not the sole criterion for reappointment or promotion and is not a guarantee of reappointment or promotion as per the document entitled Academic Appointments, Promotions and Titles at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
Tenured Members of the Faculty:
Provisions for awarding tenure and compensation obligations for tenured faculty (pursuant to policies approved by the Dartmouth College Board of Trustees in 1993) are outlined in the document entitled Academic Appointments, Promotions and Titles at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
In the event of loss of expected support from qualified sources (as assessed over a one (1)-year rolling average), tenured faculty members shall be notified by letter that they will be afforded a twelve (12)-month period to restore qualified support to requisite levels for a minimum of two (2) years (e.g., Notice of Award for a grant that provides > 2 years of committed compensation support). If funding levels have not been restored, there will be a reduction from full compensation to a reduced level. This transition will not exceed 10% per year (to no lower than the guaranteed 60% of salary). Exemptions from this policy may be granted based on approval by both the Department Chair and the Dean of Geisel School of Medicine.
No period of notification needs to be provided to either Tenure-track/Tenure Line or Non-Tenure Line faculty members if they are dismissed for cause or if they themselves terminate their employment.
