Faculty Offer Letter Templates

The offer letter templates must be used in conjunction with your approved departmental compensation plan.  Select the correct template for clinical or basic science faculty, and adjust the various clauses to match your department’s plan.  Note that, while three different methods of calculating bonuses are provided, each department should have one consistent method that they use for all faculty.  Refer to the Compensation Definitions and the resources of the Clinical Practice Association for more information.  Faculty recruitment may require finance office review, and for clinical faculty may require review for fair market value review.

Be sure to attach the correct exhibits:

  • The current HIPAA Certificate can be found here
  • The current Noncompete can be found here

If there are unique circumstances for your recruitment, contact Faculty Affairs for further guidance on changes to the offer template.

Templates for Notice of Non-Renewal and Salary Reduction

These templates are provided to assist department directors and administrators in providing appropriate notice to faculty members of the nonrenewal of their faculty appointments, and/or of any proposed reduction in the portion of their salary that is subject to the Gold Book guarantee.  These forms should not be used for making changes to other elements of faculty compensation, such as additional or bonus compensation.

Prior to issuing a salary reduction or non-renewal letter, the department should contact the Office of Faculty to permit review of any issues of potential concern.

Select the correct form for the faculty rank, and pull the current faculty appointment letter to ascertain the correct dates to insert.  Consult section V.B of the Gold Book for guidance.  Remove all document headers and highlighted or bracketed instructions and placeholders from the final letter.  Consult the Office of General Counsel before making any changes to a template.

Contact the Office of Faculty before sending a faculty member a letter proposing a salary reduction.  Consult with the Office of Faculty on any performance related issues before sending a nonrenewal letter.

(all salary reductions must be approved by Janice Clements, Vice Dean for Faculty, before distribution to faculty member)
