The revisions to this APM section align policy for administering summer salary benefits for all faculty and academic appointees with the new retirement plan options that became available to those employed on July 1, 2016 or later. APM 190, Appendix G is effective November 1, 2016.
The revised policy is issued to be effective July 1, 2015. All Specialists appointed on or after July 1, 2015 are subject to the revised policy. All Specialists with appointments beginning before July 1, 2015 are subject to the new policy with the exception of provisions for appointment and advancement criteria (APM – 330-10), qualification (APM – 330-11), and recommendation and review (APM – 330-80).
The revisions to four separate APM sections strengthen these important and longstanding University policies and clarify a range of reasons for which faculty may request and receive approval to stop the tenure clock.
