Faculty Support

Resources to help our faculty be ever better

A primary goal of the Office of the Provost is to provide guidance and support for our faculty and instructors. On this page, you’ll find a variety of links and resources, including career development tools and University-wide resources to help in your classroom and research endeavors.

Extensions to tenure due to COVID-19

All tenure-eligible faculty members will receive a one-year extension to their tenure process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty members who choose not to use the extension should contact their dean’s office to inform their dean that they are opting out of the extension.

The COVID-19 extension can be applied to any point in the tenure period (including prior to the third year review) and can be used in conjunction with a postponement of the promotion or tenure review due to the birth or adoption of a child. During the review, promotion and tenure committees will be informed of any extensions and their implications.
