NTT 3 Year Inactive Mass Term Process Returns in April

The Non-Tenure Track Faculty Inactive 3-Years Mass End Additional Job/Termination Process will return this spring with an initial clean-up run scheduled for April 22, 2022. The spring run includes all Non-Tenure Track Faculty jobs sitting in the F-INA job profile for three or more years as of January 16, 2022. Running this special mass term process resets the onboarding requirement for faculty members rehired after a significant period of inactivity. Offices that manage NTT faculty can prepare by referring to the Non-Tenure Track Faculty Inactive 3-Years Mass End Additional Job/Termination Process guidance. After the initial run, the process will occur annually, in October.
