Regents Policy on Faculty Tenure Application to UEA-D Contract

Application of the Policy on Faculty Tenure approved by the Board of Regents June 10, 2011 to Faculty Covered by UEA-D Contract

Please note that a section of the Regents Policy on Faculty Tenure may be inapplicable because it is in conflict with explicit provisions of the collective bargaining agreement, or because the subject matter is addressed in the collective bargaining agreement in detail without mention of the specific issue addressed in the Regents Policy on Faculty Tenure, or because the section of the new policy deals with terms and conditions of employment, hence negotiable. Thus, the fact that a section of the Regents Policy on Faculty Tenure is inapplicable to UEA faculty does not necessarily mean that the collective bargaining agreement calls for a different result in a specific situation.
