RE: Faculty Manual

DATE: July 20, 1989

The attached policy (#S82-58) has been superceded by new policies with the exception of a portion of 2) “faculty subject to further promotions review, in two courses each semester.”  After discussion with Patti Rogers and Gail Whitaker, it was decided to make the changes as noted in red that will appear in the revision of the faculty manual.  Gail will put this on the FAC agenda in the fall and discuss with the committee the incorporation of this phrase in the revision of the promotions policy.  She has copies of the attached paperwork.  This material is for our files and to remind up that the change needs to be made.
