  2. Faculty office assignments will also be made in order to cluster divisions, disciplines, or areas of instructional similarities.

  3. If an employee leaves the institution, all seniority rights will be lost after 12 months and seniority will not accrue during shorter periods when a person is not employed by the institution.

      4. If an employee leaves the institution, all seniority rights will be lost after 12 months and seniority will not accrue during shorter periods when a person is not employed by the institution.
