revision of College PtR policy

November 13, 2019:

The College’s Post-tenure Review policy (https://policy.ku.edu/CLAS/post-tenure-review) was revised today, in accordance with revisions approved by the College Academic Council yesterday. Most of the changes were minor textual edits. The most significant change was the removal of the College PtR forms from the Policy Library, reflecting our current practice of housing the forms on the College’s website (https://collegedean.ku.edu/post-tenure-review) instead.
