In addition to the Employee Handbook, the University has supplemented the Handbook with separate stand-alone policies and procedures which may govern and/or supersede the language in the Handbook. The University is currently updating the Employee Handbook to consolidate all policies and procedures. In the interim, please contact Human Resources for guidance on the most current/applicable policy at hr@westernu.edu. Current University policies and procedures can be found here: https://www.westernu.edu/policy/.

The University’s policies on promotion and tenure are outlined in the Faculty Handbook on pages 27 – 29 and five supplemental documents
