The Faculty Manual is subject to changes of both a retroactive and prospective nature. The Manual is intended to serve as a general guide to policies, practices, and benefits and is not intended to create a contract between the College and employees or to set forth terms of employment except as otherwise indicated. By accepting an appointment at Union College, faculty members agree to comply with all rules, regulations, and policies contained in the Faculty Manual as they presently exist or as modified from time to time.
