  • 4 = Reserach Professor
  • 5 = Research Assoc. Prof.
  • 6 = Research Asst. Prof.
  • 9 = Unreported

1 - 3 are standard. Historically, some faculty gained tenure on titles "Research Prof," "Research Associate Prof," and "Research Asst Prof," so if a history record is added for them, 4 - 6 may be used. 'A' is used when emeritus status is given to an Administrator (e.g. Dean); 9 is not currently used, but could be if tenure code 'W' is approved.

This represents the date the tenured or tenure-track status at the above rank was conferred; it defaults from 'This Action Date' but can be changed.
