SUBJECT: CHANGES IN PROMOTION AND TENURE REQUIREMENTS - CAS
Following are proposed changes to the Promotion Requirements for the College of Arts and Sciences as shown in the Faculty Handbook, Section Three, III.A.2b, p. 3-3.
(Deletions are lined through and changes are in bold italics.) It is further proposed that these changes be effective with the beginning of the 2004-2005 academic year, and that current probationary faculty be subject to the changed provisions.
III. Promotion and Tenure
A. The College of Arts and Sciences
2. Minimum Requirements for Consideration for Promotion and Tenure
a. Education: No Change Proposed
First Paragraph: No Change Proposed
For Promotion to Associate Professor, the candidate must have completed
seven six years of full-time college level academic experience, four, the
last three of which must have been at the Assistant Professor rank. If the
candidate is eligible for promotion during the year of the tenure
decision, then one petition and one departmental committee may be used
for both. Where a department employs different standards for tenure
and for promotion, the relevant set of standards must be met for each.
A candidate for Associate Professor whose petition for tenure is denied
may not be promoted.
The University Council approved the proposal on April 13, 2004.
The General Faculty approved the proposal on May 13, 2004.
President Farley recommends Board of Regents approval of the Changes in Promotion and Tenure Requirements for the College of Arts and Sciences.
