The proposed amendments to the APT, in response to COVID-19, were approved by the Board of Trustees at their April meeting and are now in effect allowing certain faculty to request a one-year extension to their tenure clock or employment contract. The full amendment can be found here. If you haven’t already, please share this with the faculty in your units.

Please note the Senate is voting on some amendments to this amendment to extend the timeline beyond Sept. 1 as well as some other language about the process for going up at “normal” time after taking an extension.
