SP.99.04 Tenure Code Rollbacks

BACKGROUND

The University Senates Conference (USC) has been considering a uniform tenure code rollback policy at the request of Vice President Manning. The USC appointed an ad hoc committee to recommend proposed changes to the Statutes. The Committee on University Statutes and Senate Procedures (USSP) has considered the proposal from that committee (OT-146) as well as comments from the Committees on Academic Freedom and Tenure and General University Policy. USSP is now proposing language that conforms to that suggested by the ad hoc committee, and includes revisions suggested by Senate Council.

RECOMMENDATION

The Committee on University Statutes and Senate Procedures recommends approval of the revisions to the Statutes, Article IX, Section 6.g and Article X, Section 1.b(1). Text to be deleted is indicated in [square brackets] and text to be added is underscored.
