Pursuant to tenure review deferral guidelines, a faculty member may choose to defer the second and fourth year review for one year due to either a family illness leave of twelve weeks or longer, or a medical leave of twelve weeks or longer. Faculty members may also request review deferrals for family illness/medical leaves of less than twelve weeks, to be granted at the discretion of the dean.
