The following list of documents constitutes what we refer to as the “Standard Order” of paperwork which must be submitted for tenure track reappointments for review and approval through administrative channels. This list relates to and is partially duplicated by the document titled “Dossier: Format for Tenure Track or Tenured Faculty Review”. However, the below guidelines include other administrative documents and forms which in total compose the appointment package but which are not a substantive part of the faculty committee review process.
Timing Of Review For Reappointment Or Promotion
When a faculty member is given an initial probationary appointment of five years at the rank of Associate Professor without tenure and is reappointed conferring tenure before the completion of the initial appointment, the next review for possible promotion must take place during the fourth year following the effective date of tenure.
Decisions not to promote must have supporting reasons, including reports of external reviewers. A report of decisions not to promote, with supporting reasons, shall be forwarded through the same administrative channels as the review of the recommendations for an initial appointment of an associate professor for a five-year term.
Tenure Regulations state:
No less than 12 months before the end of a five year probationary term appointment as associate professor, a decision shall be made and communicated in writing to the associate professor as to whether he or she will be reappointed upon expiration of the current term. This decision shall be made and communicated as provided in Section 2.c. hereof. No decision need then be made as to the rank to be had upon reappointment. If a decision is made to reappoint and no promotion has been made prior to expiration of the five year term, the associate professor is thereupon reappointed at the rank of associate professor, with permanent tenure.
