Procedures for Promotion and Tenure Review

Instructions for Preparing the File


Informing the Candidate –

  • It is very important that the candidate be informed of the procedures and criteria considered for promotion and/or continuing appointment.  Therefore, each candidate for promotion and/or continuing appointment should be provided with a copy of these administrative procedures at time of hire and at each term renewal.
  • The candidate should be given the opportunity (and encouraged) to add material to the file at any time during the review process (e.g., new manuscripts, articles as they appear in print, new teaching evaluations, etc.)
