AR 2:1-1 - Procedures for Faculty Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, and the Granting of Tenure [Official PDF]

Summary


These procedures and criteria have been developed for the purpose of continually improving the quality and performance of the faculty in order to enhance the quality of the University's programs and permit the University to achieve its multiple missions.

The review required for promotion and granting of tenure is a summative evaluation of both the candidate's s accomplishments over the entire probationary period and the candidate's s future scholarly potential. It is based on the criteria set out in the Administrative Regulations, which require a consideration of information (e.g., the evaluations of external reviewers) that might not be available for the annual performance and tenure progress reviews.

Faculty appointments are in educational units and shall be of three types: (1) tenure-ineligible appointments; (2) tenured or tenure-eligible appointments; and (3) post-retirement appointments. (GR X-B.1)

Before appointing a faculty employee, the educational unit must ensure that it has followed the established hiring policies and practices of the college, as codified in the college rules and unit rules, and all Governing Regulations and Administrative Regulations on appointments.

Topics Include


Comprehensive Tenure Review, Faculty Appointment, Faculty Reappointment, Probationary Period, Promotion
