About Tenure Track Faculty

Each member of the faculty is appointed subject to the duties and responsibilities detailed in the ABOR-PM 6-201, et seq. Tenure track faculty members are originally appointed with the words "with tenure" or "tenure-eligible" on their Notice of Appointment.

Tenure-eligible faculty members shall mean those members of the faculty who hold full-time as yet untenured appointments as professors, associate professors, and assistant professors, and whose title does not include such designations as "visiting," "adjunct," "research" or "clinical." The policy for computation of tenure-eligible time is outlined in UHAP 3.3.01 (or UHAP 3.1.01.b for previous service) for attainment of tenure can only occur through specific notification by the President and may not result from inaction or inadvertence. A tenured faculty member is assured that the President shall offer an appointment to that individual for each succeeding fiscal or academic year until retirement, resignation, dismissal for just cause, or termination for budgetary reasons or for educational policy change.
