How will this impact my merit, promotion, tenure, etc?
“Stop the Clock”
“Stop the Clock” options are available for research delays due to COVID-19. CAP will treat COVID-19 as it does other “Stop the Clocks.” The accomplishments will be evaluated as if they had occurred in a time period without the stopped year (i.e., a three year review period that with “Stop the Clock” took four years will be evaluated for three years of accomplishments). If the pandemic slowed a faculty member’s career progression beyond a single year then this should be explained in their review file. This will be considered by all levels of review.

“Stop the Clock” requests cover a period of one year for each event. Total “Stop the Clock” requests for an individual cannot total more than two years without filing for an exception. Thus, a third-year request would require UCOP approval via Office of Academic Personnel.
Timing for submitting AP-92 for a COVID-19-related “Stop the Clock”
The deadline has passed to submit the form for proposed actions (i.e., Mid-Career Assessment or Tenure review) during the 2020-2021 review cycle. For later actions the form must be submitted by June 30, 2021. You can “Stop the Clock” by submitting the AP-92 form then still put forward your action at the normal time without penalty if you do not need the extension. It is recommended for all assistant professors to submit the form by the June 30, 2021 deadline in case the extra time is needed. (https://ap.uci.edu/covid19/)
The dean encourages everyone who is eligible to apply for this consideration.
Merits and promotions for academic year 2020-2021 will proceed as normal.
