COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on TPR and Faculty Evaluations

The Provost’s Office assures faculty that their huge pivot to online learning during these challenging times is understood as difficult and straining. University leadership is working hard to find ways to recognize and document how COVID-19-related directives shape capabilities for these efforts while juggling multiple professional and personal responsibilities. Clemson University will continue to adopt the best practices of inclusion, equity, and shared governance in how we address tenure clocks, tenure-promotion-reappointment (TPR) processes and expectations, and annual evaluations. Leadership across the University is working together to provide ways to capture adjustments and how such adjustments impact expectations of research, scholarship, teaching, service, extension, and outreach. A comprehensive communication is anticipated during the week of March 30th.

The success of our University is closely connected to the remarkable quality of its faculty. Our office provides comprehensive support for Clemson faculty during all stages of their academic career in the areas of teaching, research, personnel matters, professional development and service endeavors.
