University Committee On Faculty Tenure

The University Committee on Faculty Tenure (UCFT) is described in section 4.7 of the Bylaws for Academic Governance as the Committee that:

  • Shall advise the Provost on the formal and procedural rules for the award and revocation of tenure and on policies relating to tenure, and shall make recommendations to the Faculty Senate on such rules and on policies.
  • Shall hear and act on all cases for exceptions to the rules of tenure and its decisions on the matters shall be binding on the administration and on the faculty member.

In addition, the role of the UCFT on the interpretation of the rules of tenure is determined by Principle Seven of the Operating Principles of the Tenure System (see Faculty Handbook ).
