C20: Employment of UNM Graduates
Approved by Faculty on March 12, 1951
As a general policy, no person who has received a degree from the University of New Mexico shall hereafter be employed as a regular member of the faculty in a position which may lead to permanent tenure unless subsequent to the last degree at the University of New Mexico, he or she has taken at least one academic year of advanced work at another reputable institution or has established himself or herself professionally elsewhere. Such work or professional experience must be in his or her teaching field.
At the discretion of the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs or the Vice President for Health Sciences for Health Sciences faculty, an exception may be made to this general policy in the case of a person who has taken a master's degree, its equivalent, or pursued other substantial graduate work at another reputable institution before receiving a more advanced degree at the University of New Mexico.
In case of the above or any other exceptions to the general policy, it is recommended that the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs consult with the Academic Freedom and Tenure Committee before taking action.
