Highlight

Board of Higher Education policies, rules and regulations adopted as part of its policy manual govern termination of university faculty members and are part of the employment contract between the institution and the faculty member.

Generally, substantial compliance with the procedural requirements for termination is sufficient if their purpose is fulfilled.

The separation of powers doctrine does not permit judicial examination of the adequacy of a university president’s review of the record.
