Revision of Tenure Policies, Regulations, and Procedures

Effective Date: 
Thursday, December 4, 2014

These revisions to University Policy 102.13, Tenure Policies, Regulations, and Procedures, incorporate recommendations made by an ad hoc faculty committee created by the Provost to create clarity and consistency in the Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure process and documents. Those recommendations include adding the definition of “dossier” and clarifying what is contained in the “review file." In addition, revisions to University Policy 102.13 incorporate a recommendation made by the Chancellor and Provost removing the Chancellor from the review process to reflect the current practice of the Provost making final reappointment, promotion, and tenure decisions, with appeals of those decisions going to the Chancellor.
