Reappointment Timetable

3.1  All tenure-track faculty members are considered to hold probationary appointments for one year, subject to annual renewal.

3.2   Faculty members with probationary appointments in the tenure track shall be reviewed annually until the academic year in which they are considered for tenure.  Faculty appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor shall in most cases stand for tenure following five successful reappointment reviews. Faculty appointed at ranks higher than that of Assistant Professor may serve a shorter probationary period.

3.3  University policy allows eligible, untenured faculty members to extend their probationary period (toll) if family or other personal circumstances warrant this change.

3.4  Regardless of the date of hire, UL faculty members will undergo an expedited reappointment review in the first December of their appointment. They will thereafter undergo reappointment according to the regular University schedule.
