Bylaws changes concerning Tenure & Promotion were introduced at the February 20 meeting of the Faculty Senate and will be discussed by the Senate on March 20. The bylaws changes are proposed by the ARK committee, an ad-hoc committee created by the Provost to "clean-up" promotion, tenure and evaluation sections in the UNLV bylaws. The University Tenure & Promotion committee and the University Bylaws committee have vetted but not endorsed these changes. Links to the proposed changes as well as research & background are linked here.
