Pre-tenure Extension Policy

In recognition of the family obligations facing many faculty, a pre-tenure extension is available to untenured men and women faculty in cases of family emergencies and/or childbirth or adoption.

Upon written notification by the care-giving parent or parents within one year after each live birth or after each adoption, an extension of one year of the pre-tenure period shall be granted by the provost.

Faculty may then apply for tenure on the original or extended schedule at their discretion.

Please see the faculty handbook for more details.
