Congratulations. The PRT committee just met and voted unanimously for renewal, which in this case means tenure. I am required to notify you within 7 days of our vote so I have attached the notification letter. The letter that goes to the dean is not due until December 9. You will get a copy of that letter when it is transmitted to the dean.

Congratulations! Yeah! Now you deserve to take a couple months off and get sleep-deprived! :) Really, great job.

Congrats. I look forward to many years of arguing with you...now that you have been given the same life sentence.
