Key Documents

Several critical documents underpin the work of the UFA and govern the faculty at the University of Montana.

Documents Governing Faculty

  • Collective Bargaining Agreement. This agreement between the UFA and the entire Montana University System governs how faculty are hired, their rights while employed and issues ranging from sick leave to pay. The CBA covers all tenured and tenure-track appointments.
  • Non-Tenurable Academic Appointments. Those instructors and faculty not governed by the CBA are covered by a set of policies put forward by the University of Montana.
