See handbook section 6.L “Termination for Cause.”

5.N.2 Research Faculty, Librarians, Archivists, and Curators

Research faculty (research professor and research scientist tracks) may be dismissed for failure to meet the requirements of their position or for conduct that violates University policy or criminal law, or which interferes with the orderly and efficient operation of the University. The University expects that, when appropriate, these faculty members will be given an opportunity to change their conduct or attitude to avoid termination. (SPG 201.12) In situations of incompetence, they should be provided a full and complete understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of the position and an adequate opportunity, when appropriate, to reach the acceptable level of performance.

Discipline and dismissal procedures for librarians, archivists, and curators are governed by Article XV of the LEO-GLAM collective bargaining agreement.
