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.

If you have comments or questions, please contact us via email:
