Faculty Rights Tip: Were You Denied Tenure or Promotion This Year?

As the summer begins, probationary faculty and faculty up for promotion should continue to check your campus mail regularly.

Final notifications for the award of retention, tenure, or a final terminal year come no later than June 1. Final notifications for promotion come no later than June 15.

If you receive a final notice and were denied tenure and/or promotion during this year’s review cycle you should contact your CFA faculty rights representative immediately. 

You have 42 days from the date you received the notice to file an appeal through the grievance process.

Don’t wait until the last minute! Contact your CFA faculty rights representative immediately.
