Revision of the Academic Personnel Policy (APP): Public Draft Available for Review!

The Academic Personnel Policy (APP) defines the personnel policies (appointment, promotion, tenure, employment) for all UMMS faculty. In June 2015 we began a process to revise this document, engaging many faculty and administrators. A public draft of the revised APP is now available for review here.

There are also online resources available, including annotated versions of both the current and revised documents as well as Frequently Asked Questions.

General Faculty Meeting

The APP revision will be discussed at a General Faculty Meeting, sponsored by Faculty Council, on Thursday, March 9, 2017 (4:00–6:00 pm, Albert Sherman Center Auditorium). Please review the revised APP and plan to attend this meeting.

If you have comments or questions, please submit before the meeting to Faculty.Affairs@umassmed.edu.
