This message is important for tenure-track faculty who have not yet gone through their tenure evaluation.  The Office of the Provost, announced the extension of the RPT Process in their Special Edition Newsletter sent out yesterday.  The language of the announcement is given in italics below.  You may also find it at the Provost's Web site under Newsletters,


The Provost’s Office, in conjunction with members of the Faculty Senate, considers COVID-19 as a circumstance that warrants the granting of an extension of the tenure-track contract and of the third-year renewal, as per Faculty Handbook
