We discussed the Regents meeting, including the delayed release of the 2016-17 operating budget materials. We met with Chancellor Mone and Provost Britz. The Regents have mandated the campus provide post tenure review policies for approval by the end of the Fall semester. The chair provided the committee with the Regent policy, the current documents, and preliminary language for revision. The committee will review these materials this summer and prepare draft documents in preparation for their submission to the faculty and approval by the Senate in the fall. Institutional research data indicate there are about 800 faculty at UWM. About a quarter have been in rank for about 10 years or more, either as associate or full professor
