what is tenure
What is Tenure?
  • Tenure is a promise of continued employment, absent malfeasance
  • A specific salary isn’t promised

      • Associate professor $25K
  • For faculty who do not belong to the PDC, tenure may have a different meaning

    • Standard Tenure Clock (10 years)*
      • 1: Clinical / Administrative / Educators
      • 2: Clinician Researchers
      • 3: Research focused faculty
    • Non-clocked – term appointments
      • 4: Clinicians
      • 5: Researchers
