 Academic Affairs

Application of the Tenure Code Approved by the Board of Regents June 8, 2007 to Faculty Covered by UEA Contract 

Please note that a section of the Tenure Code 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 Tenure Code, or because the section of the new code deals with terms and conditions of employment, hence negotiable. Thus, the fact that a section of the Tenure Code is inapplicable to UEA faculty does not necessarily mean that the collective bargaining agreement calls for a different result in a specific situation.
