Notes from Meetings


Q: There needs to be a process put in place for review or approval of an administrative appointee being given a tenured appointment at the end of their term. There should at least be something similar to the process of approving two years credit towards the probationary period [or perhaps appointment with tenure; the selection recommends this in consultation with the TPC and the UTPC makes its own recommendation to the Provost].
