Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine and analyze certain legal aspects of faculty employment in the community colleges and technical institutes in North Carolina. Major legal aspects of faculty employment studied were tenure, contracts, and dismissal. The study included examination of court cases, faculty contracts, procedural manuals, and unpublished documents used in community colleges and technical institutes. A survey was conducted among the presidents of the twenty-one community colleges and thirty-six technical institutes in North Carolina. The investigation revealed that there was little uniformity in tenure plans across the United States. There was no definitive legal norm which judges applied with consistency. Courts tended to stress procedures, giving the tenure plan itself the weight of law in terms of faithfulness in applying it as written.
