My new contract arrived in my campus mailbox today! It is so exciting being able to sign it, turn it in, and know that I have a job for another year. It was only a one year contract, and as I found out today that is to be expected because we are a new college (within the university) and haven’t become fully accredited yet (not until June 2012). After we become accredited, we will then be eligible for longer contract terms. There was positive news in my contract…I received a 3.5% raise (or cost-of-living increase, however you want to look at it)!
Does anyone else have exciting stories to tell about their new contract?
