Senate Bill 18-19-38

Bill ID: 18-19-38
Name: Faculty Affairs Committee Memo on APT Guidelines Review
Proposed: 04/11/2019
Sponsor: Faculty Affairs Committee
Proposal: The Joint Provost/Senate APT Guidelines Task Force conducted a Review of the University of Maryland Guidelines for Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure (Senate Document #12-13-24). In addition to recommending revisions to the Guidelines, the task force recommended that the Guidelines be reviewed every five years by a Joint Provost/Senate Task Force, as deemed necessary. In the fourth year of the review cycle, the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs should report to the Senate Faculty Affairs Committee on annual changes and evolving trends in higher education since the last review, to determine whether a formal review is necessary. However, the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and the Senate Faculty Affairs Committee may convene a review earlier in the cycle upon mutual agreement.
