Information contained in this booklet does not create any contractual rights for University employees beyond those rights already existing under individual contracts and under federal and state law.

Because the University is the initiator of change and is also subject to various external legal and regulatory forces requiring change, the information in this booklet will be revised as the University determines that conditions warrant.
