REGULATIONS FOR CONTINUANCE IN EMPLOYMENT BEYOND THE MANDATORY RETIREMENT AGE FOR ACADEMIC EMPLOYEES

Academic Senate Policy #S81-77

At its meeting of May 5, 1981, the Academic Senate approved the following regulations for continuance in employment beyond the mandatory retirement age for academic employees:

Certification of faculty aged 70 or over shall be based on annual evaluations of teaching effectiveness by the departmental HRT committee and by students. Based on these evaluations, a letter of recommendation shall be forwarded from the HRT committee to the chair, the dean and the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs.

Both the operational and forwarding procedures for certification of faculty aged 70 or over, and the general principles guiding such certification procedures, shall be the same as those procedures and principles for retention and tenure recommendations set forth in the SFSU Faculty Manual, Sections 2.9 and 2.10. The sole criterion for certification shall be teaching effectiveness. For faculty whose primary assignment is other than teaching, the sole criteria shall be effectiveness in assignment.
