The Shepherd University Staff Handbook includes information related to the employment of full-time and part-time classified and non-classified employees. Some provisions herein do apply to some non-instructional faculty. For additional and complete information related to faculty, please consult the University’s Faculty Handbook.
The Staff Handbook is not a comprehensive manual of all policies and procedures, but is intended to answer many basic questions and to direct readers to additional sources of information. It is the responsibility of every employee to be familiar with the current Shepherd University Staff Handbook and to comply with the guidelines contained therein.
Policies and procedures will change from time to time to accommodate changes in circumstances and applicable law. At any given time, existing policy and law will prevail over inadvertent errors or outdated material in the Staff Handbook. This version of the Staff Handbook replaces all previous versions. Old versions of the Staff Handbook should be discarded.
