Sierra Nevada Puts Faculty Contracts on Hold

May 30, 2017

Sierra Nevada College has notified all faculty members, who normally receive contracts for the next academic year in May, that no contracts are being awarded this month. The college says that some faculty members will in August receive contracts for the next academic year. A letter to faculty members, obtained by Inside Higher Ed, says that the college needs more time "to better gauge the most likely level of enrollment that can be expected for the 2017-18 academic year and the college's ability to develop a balanced budget."

Via email, Alan Walker, the president, confirmed the accuracy of the letter. He said that the need for more time to determine enrollment levels for next year is because "a significant portion of the entering class has historically come in later than other institutions (beyond the traditional May-early June period)."
