Tenure provisions are not extended to any persons holding appointment to management/supervisory positions during the term of that appointment nor should the time served in such a position be counted towards the accrual of tenure if and when, a management/supervisor returns to the faculty unit. Tenure is not applicable to any management/supervisor position. Existing management/supervisor personnel that have been awarded tenure as a faculty member shall retain that faculty tenure status.
Department Chairpersons shall retain and accrue seniority while serving as such and existing Deans and Assistant Deans shall retain and accrue seniority while serving as such. In addition, administrators who are on leave of absence from faculty appointments shall accrue all seniority and salary rights while in administrative positions excluding years toward tenure.
