Covie-19 One Year Tenure Extension
Given the extraordinary challenges that the ongoing Covid-19 emergency has created for research and teaching activities, President Bobbitt has approved a one-year extension of the probationary period for every pre-tenured faculty member who is in the first 5 years of their probationary period. This extension incorporates, and does not add to, any extensions that have already been applied for under Board of Trustees Policy 405.1.IV.A.4 during the current academic year.
Any additional extensions for currently serving, pre-tenured faculty will be considered rare and will be considered on a case by case basis.
This action is subject to all other provisions of Board Policy 405.1 and other applicable University policies.
Please note this one-year tenure extension applies to faculty members already employed and on a tenure track at the time of the announcement (March 30, 2020).
