The University’s Expectations for the Promotion and Tenure Process

7.11   THE UNIVERSITY’S EXPECTATIONS FOR THE PROMOTION AND TENURE PROCESS  

The University Faculty Affairs Committee (UFCA) is charged with oversight of the promotion and tenure criteria and processes used by all colleges at the University.  The goal of this oversight process is to ensure that the promotion and tenure criteria and procedures as established by each college are clearly stated and in parallel with one another.  Additionally, the UFCA is charged with ensuring that promotion and tenure criteria and procedures of each college adhere to the guidelines established in the University Faculty Handbook, and that any changes undergo an oversight review prior to implementation.
