1. These guidelines, and any modifications thereof, will be made available to all administrative personnel and academic staff members, and, upon request, to other members of the Stanford faculty and staff.
2. Academic staff appointments shall be made either:
a. For a stipulated length of time.
b. For a continuing term of appointment. The "continuing term" is not a tenured appointment. Rather, "continuing term of appointment" signifies that the individual will be terminated only for just cause, for lack of satisfactory performance, or for lack of programmatic need (including budgetary considerations).
c. For the duration of either an administrative appointment or a specific project.
Academic staff appointed for a stipulated length of time or for a continuing term of appointment are entitled to the notice provisions of Article III below. An academic staff appointment made for the duration of an administrative appointment or a specific project shall, unless otherwise expressly stipulated, be construed as terminating on the expiration of the administrative appointment or the project.
