Faculty Committees

Deadlines and Leaves 2014 - 2015

Charges:

Unresolved questions concerning what prior service must or must not be counted, and other matters pertaining to the length of the probationary period, shall be directed to the Committee on Deadlines and Leaves for its review and recommendations to the President. This review may take place before the appointment is accepted, or on request thereafter. The Committee also gives its review and recommendations on requests to change a probationary deadline based on special circumstances.

If an approved school guideline establishes an up-or-out deadline for non- tenure-track promotion, and the faculty member does not accept a decision by the dean on stopping the clock, the Committee on Deadlines and Leaves gives its review and recommendations to the Provost. In such cases, the Committee will include non-tenure-track faculty of the rank of associate professor or above, as well as tenured faculty.

If there is an appeal as to the grant or denial of a sabbatical or other research leave, the Committee on Deadlines and Leaves gives its review and recommendations to the Provost. If the case involves a non-tenure-track faculty member, the Committee will include non-tenure-track faculty of the rank of associate professor or above, as well as tenured faculty.

The committee consists of a chairman and additional members (usually six) named by the Executive Board, some of whom will be non-tenure-track faculty who will serve in non-tenure-track cases, and in addition members (usually two) who are vice/associate/assistant deans, named by the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs.
