Tenure Clock Management

Administrators in Lifecycle Management can create special events that can be set to alter the expected timeline of a faculty member's "tenure clock" for a variety of reasons such as an extended leave or at the request of faculty. Lifecycle Management administrators can update the start and end dates within a faculty profile in one action to account for when a faculty member's tenure clock has been stopped or accelerated. When users adjust event dates for a faculty record they are required to log the reason for the adjustment, allowing institutions to track reasons for individual tenure clock adjustments.

The following article explains how to use our tenure clock management features.
