University Senate

Proposed: January 28, 1994

Adopted: January 28, 1994

Resolution to Establish University Policies and Procedures

for Appointments to Special Nontenured Instructional Ranks

WHEREAS, a legitimate instructional need exists around the University for exceptions to the eight-year up-or-out rule on nontenured service, and

WHEREAS, heretofore exceptions have been granted occasionally on a school-by-school basis, but no attempt has been made to develop a comprehensive policy, and

WHEREAS, restrictions on, and monitoring of, these exceptions are indispensable to maintaining the quality of the University’s scholarly and research effort,

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the University Senate adopt the attached report [Report of the Faculty Affairs Committee on University Policies and Procedures for Appointment to Special Nontenured Instructional Ranks, January 21, 1994 ] as permanent University policy, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the attached report be incorporated as an appendix into the Faculty Handbook, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that suitable amendments to the University Statutes enacting this policy be recommended by the Senate to the Trustees at the earliest possible date.


Faculty Affairs Committee,

Executive Committee
