Time Period Exclusion from the Probationary Period

Policy number: 
06.008
Policy description: 

Excluding time from the probationary period allows balance between work and life away from work for tenure track faculty members who experience significant personal obligations (e.g. medical, family or other circumstances that interfere with academic work) during the pre-tenure probationary period.  Recognizing the inherent challenges in balancing work and life away from work and addressing them appropriately allows UNT to recruit and retain the best scholars, who will contribute to academic excellence at UNT.
