The due dates for recommendations are based on years at UNL, while the fourth year review is based on one's tenure clock, that is, the cumulative number of years credited for progress towards tenure. The "Date of Initial Appointment/Years at UNL" and the "Tenure Clock Years" coincide when the faculty member's initial appointment is the first year of their "Specific-term" (tenure leading) appointment here at UNL.


  1. A new faculty member is awarded tenure credit for previous experience.
  2. There is a tenure clock extension.
