Splitting tenure

Sometimes faculty members wish to split their tenure between two academic appointing units. Traditionally this has only been allowed when the tenure was split 50/50 between the two units, but it is sometimesĀ allowable to split tenure 67/33 between the primary and secondary units.Ā This arrangement is more complex than an even 50/50 split. The specifics of splitting tenure are found in the following pages. For specific questions regarding this practice, please contact your dean/chancellor’s offices or your Academic HR specialist.


The following documentation is needed in order to process a joint appointment with split tenure. Both forms must be signed and dated by the appropriate parties and included in the new hire packet.
