6.I Partial Appointments

Save section as a PDF

A partial appointment is an appointment that is less than 100% effort. If the instructional track portion of a partial appointment is less than 80% effort, the University “tenure clock” does not run during the time the appointment is below 80%. Any changes in title, rank, or appointment fractions that start or stop the tenure clock require the prior written approval of the provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. See SPG 201.13 and handbook section 6.C “Tenure Probationary Period.”
