Periodic Multi-Year Review

The primary purpose of the Periodic Multi-Year Review (PMYR) is to assist tenured faculty and librarians in their continuing professional development. Faculty and librarians who have been awarded tenure through the rigorous process by which tenure is attained have been judged by the University as having demonstrated excellent performance and represent a substantial investment on the part of the University.

The PMYR purpose, principles, timing and review process are laid out in Appendix A- 13 of the Massachusetts Society of Professors (MSP) contract.
