Per Wis. Stat. Chapter UWS 10, Academic Staff appointments are fixed-term, probationary, or indefinite. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has a contract scheme, according to the Employee Handbook, that allows for various length appointments based upon years in position.
Contract letters were sent today (June 25th) to Academic Staff employees with contracts expiring this year. Employees currently on rolling horizon contracts receive a letter each year, as the contract dates are extended yearly. Employees in a multi-year fixed-term appointment whose contracts are not expiring this year will not receive an appointment renewal letter until the end of their current contract period.
Appointment changes (i.e. Title, FTE, or Salary Change, etc.) that occur within a given contract term will be communicated separately by HR upon implementation.
As a reminder, no additional rolling horizon contracts will be issued. Therefore, employees moving from a three-year rolling horizon to a five-year term in the 15th year of service will move to a five-year fixed-term contract.
Should you have any questions about details contained within the letter or about the contract process, please contact Human Resources.
