The University invites comments on proposed revisions to APM 133-17-g-j, Limitation on Total Period of Service with Certain Academic Titles. The proposed revisions are intended to extend the eight-year limitation on service for certain reasons. While current policy provides for an automatic exclusion from service limitations when leave is related to childbearing and childrearing (see APM - 133-17-g-(3)), the proposed revisions specify that campus Academic Personnel procedures will establish how a faculty member may apply for an extension of the eight-year rule when the request is related to a serious health condition including disability or bereavement, or other significant circumstance or event.
The proposed revisions are available at the following website:
This is a final review of the proposed revisions. Final review is intended to advise the results of the systemwide review and how language has been refined. The University does not anticipate substantive revisions during final review. This stage of consultation is intended to resolve prior discussions and to answer remaining questions.
If you have comments or questions, please contact Kelly Lindlar, director of Academic Policy Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, June 5, 2015.
