Educational Administrators Seniority and Retreat Rights

Educational administrators have retreat rights to the classroom. However, educational administrators who have not taught and achieved tenure at COC will have to go through the tenure process if they decide to teach full-time. Exemption: chancellor Dianne Van Hook was granted retreat rights with honorary tenured status by the Academic Senate.
