Promotion and Tenure

The Promotion and Tenure Committee recommends to the faculty criteria for promotion and tenure and sets procedures for the implementation of promotion and tenure policies, subject to approval by the faculty. Within each academic unit, tenured and tenure-track faculty members formulate specific unit criteria for promotion and tenure; these unit criteria are approved by the Promotion and Tenure Committee. The Promotion and Tenure Committee, in accordance with approved University criteria and procedures and with specific unit criteria, reviews and makes recommendations to the Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the Chancellor regarding the granting of promotion and tenure. The Committee hears appeals of post tenure reviews and makes recommendations to the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
