Reminder on FSU Covid 19 Spring 20 Agreement- Deadline to delay TDY is in June


Dear FSU Members,

We want to remind you about a number of important provisions from the COVID-19 Spring 20 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that we signed last April. 

  • Junior faculty have the option of extending tenure clocks by a year. The deadline to notify the Administration of intent to delay the tenure decision is June 1, 2021 (please read the MOA for details).
  • Teaching evaluations for Spring 2020 cannot be singled out as uniquely persuasive evidence of poor teaching.  They must be contextualized within a holistic approach by Dept Chairs and DPCs – and flagged as unique. According to the MOA, the Administration was supposed to provide guidance on this provision to departments. We will be working with the Administration to ensure that this guidance is properly implemented.
