IN THIS ISSUE
Through its Annual Newsletter the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) brings to faculty, staff, and students items related to preserving and promoting the well-being of the professoriate, enhancing the quality of instruction, and serving the educational interests of the public. Included in this newsletter are articles on the proposal made by the Provost's Committee to Consider a More Flexible Tenure Probationary Period to change Regents Bylaw 5.09 to extend the maximum tenure probationary period from 8 to 10 years. Those who want to keep abreast of happenings at the University of Michigan and who desire a contrasting view independent from that of University administrators might wish to visit the Chapter web page (see below).
