COVID-19 Tenure Clock Extension Request
The COVID-19 pandemic has created, and will continue to create, unprecedented challenges, disruptions, and adjustments for faculty, both personally and professionally. Many faculty are concerned about the impact of the pandemic on their ability to earn tenure. Please note that University leaders understand the challenges and concerns and are identifying and implementing ways to support faculty to the fullest extent possible.
On April 17, 2020 Robert H. Jones, executive vice president of academic affairs and provost, and Danny Weathers, president of Faculty Senate, issued a joint memo indicating that all tenure-track faculty hired prior to July 1, 2020 who enter their penultimate year after the 2020-2021 academic year are eligible to request a one-year extension in their tenure clock. The forms to do so and the memo from Jones and Weathers, with more detail, follow below.
If faculty have any questions about the process they can e-mail email@example.com.
