(a) Calendar Year — an annual obligation of service for the full year, i.e., 12 months
(b) Academic Year (faculty only) — an annual obligation of service for the academic year, not to exceed 10 months
(c) College Year — an annual obligation or service for any period less than the full year
§ 2. Professional Obligation. The professional obligation of an employee consistent with the employee’s academic rank or professional title, shall include teaching, research, University service and other duties and responsibilities required of the employee during the term of the employee’s professional obligation.
§ 3. Appointment Year. Unless the terms of appointment otherwise provide, the normal appointment year shall be from September 1 to August 31, regardless of payroll mode; provided, however, that an academic year employee may be required to commence the employee’s professional obligation at a date reasonably prior to September 1 as may be necessitated by a college’s operating requirements.
