Tenure clock extension  

Pace University recognizes that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created circumstances that prevent or interrupt faculty progress toward professional and scholarly achievement. Therefore, we are offering the option to extend the tenure clock by one year for any current tenure-track faculty member whose tenure case is to be reviewed by their department, school/college and the University in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years.
