New Academic Policies Effective March 21, 2020

1.)  Revised: Pass/Fail Option for Undergraduates and Undergraduate Courses

The regular restrictions that apply to the use of P/F by undergraduates have been suspended for Spring 2020 classes.

  • Students may elect to cover any number of grades from Spring 2020 that are a C- or higher with a P.
  • Spring 2020 P grades will not count against the 4 P/F elections undergraduates are allowed in their career.
  • P grades for Spring 2020 will be allowed to fulfill any major, minor or general university requirement, and will be allowed to double count for requirements as a regularly graded course would.
  • Consistent with our current P/F policy, P grades do not factor into a student’s GPA.  For the Spring 2020 semester, grades of “D” and “E” will remain as letter grades but will not be factored into a student's GPA.  

The regular deadlines for covering a Spring 2020 grade with a P still apply - May 13th for graduating seniors; October 15th for all other undergraduates.  Once a Spring 2020 grade has posted, students may email passfail@brandeis.edu to request the grade be covered with a P.

2.)  End of term Evaluations Suspension

The Committee on Teaching, Learning, and Assessment recommended, and I concur, that we will not conduct end-of-term teaching evaluations in any of our schools apart from the Rabb School Graduate Professional Programs. The Center for Teaching and Learning will share examples of a confidential end-of-term evaluation form that you may edit and use at your own discretion for formative purposes. Each individual instructor will be the only one who can access their own results.

3.)  Extension of the Tenure Clock

The Committee on Faculty Rights and Responsibilities has approved a proposal from the Academic Deans and me to extend the tenure decision for up to two semesters for those currently on the tenure track.  This would apply to all those who are currently scheduled to come up for tenure in the academic year of 2020-21, and beyond. There will also be an adjustment of the current four-semester limit for tenure clock extensions for FMLA leave for any current tenure track faculty member.  Current tenure track faculty will now have an upper limit of up to six semesters.  Faculty are not required to delay their tenure clock, but now have this option to request an extension. Please contact your Deans for further details and answers to your questions on this.

4.)  Additional Change to the Academic Calendar

The April Passover Break has been further amended so that there will be no university exercises including scheduled instruction time, assignments, or exams from Noon April 8 – April 10 as well as from April 15-16.

5.)  Extension of 2019-2020 Provost Research and Teaching Innovation Awards

I know that some of you have not been able to do all that you planned with funds from the 2019-2020 Provost Innovation Awards for teaching or research.  Therefore I am extending the period of time over which your funds may be spent to December 31, 2020.
