Tenure Clock Extension

There is a process at LSUHSC for extending the tenure clock when a faculty member's personal obligations or situation can reasonably be anticipated to impede progress towards tenure. The approval of the department head and Dean is required, and then request should then be forwarded to the office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. If the request is approved, the department head is notified in writing.

The committee proposed the following resolution passed by the Faculty Senate on leave policies, including parental  leave, and tenure clock extension:
