05.03.10
Provision for Interim Suspension in Extreme Emergency If in the judgment of the Chancellor there is a high probability that the continued assignment of a Faculty member to regular duties will be immediately and seriously harmful to the University community, the Chancellor may place the Faculty member on full or partial interim suspension with full pay. Such a suspension is a precautionary action and not a form of discipline. Before imposing such an interim suspension, the Chancellor shall, to the extent feasible under the circumstances in the individual case, consult with the chairs of the Committee on Charges and the Committee on Privilege and Tenure. The Chancellor shall promptly provide the Faculty member with a written statement of the reason for such suspension and shall promptly refer the matter to the Committee on Privilege and Tenure. The Committee on Privilege and Tenure shall promptly provide an opportunity for a hearing to the Faculty member and report its findings and recommendations with respect to the propriety of the suspension to the Chancellor.(Am 20 Feb 07)
