ffective in Fall 2012.

Tenure applications and decisions must be made no later than the sixth year of full-time tenure-eligible service. Some tenure track faculty contracts include
approved prior tenure service credit from prior institutions. To be eligible for tenure, the faculty member must show promise of continued long-term productivity in all areas of evaluation. Participating in the tenure review process does not guarantee tenure, as awarding tenure is an exclusive responsibility of the Board of Trustees.

See LTU's Tenure and Promotion Processes document for complete information.
