All staff and faculty are employed by the President as delegated by the Board of Trustees, subject to standards established by the State Board of Community Colleges.
The General Statutes of North Carolina do not permit local boards of trustees to establish a tenure policy for community college employees without the specific authority of the North Carolina General Assembly. Since a tenure policy is not authorized,contractsfor full-time employees are issued by Blue Ridge Community College on an annual basis beginning July 1.
Specific salary agreements will be determined as soon as budget allocations are received from the State Board of Community Colleges. All contracts are dependent upon the allocation of funds to the College.
