7.3.6 Exceptions to Minimum Service and Probation Requirements
Approved by Academic Council, Faculty, Administration
In exceptional cases, the University's interests may best be served by reducing the minimum length of service for promotion and/or the probationary period for tenure.
It is appropriate for the Provost to determine such exceptions recommended by the dean, but the evaluation process for promotion, tenure, or appointment should otherwise conform with the criteria and procedures described in this manual.
Time on Faculty Administrative Leaves (see Section 8.7 Faculty Administrative Leaves) is to be excluded in calculating length of service for promotion and/or the probationary period for tenure.
