Promotion of Tenured Faculty

Last updated: 12/8/1997


This policy was issued by the Office of the Provost on December 8, 1997.

Recommendations for the promotion of tenured faculty must be in accord with the provisions of the tenure system and provide the same procedural protections that are provided to non-tenured faculty as described in the statement on "Non-Tenured Faculty in the Tenure System." Specifically, tenured faculty are entitled to confer with the unit review group that is designated to make recommendations with respect to promotion before a decision is made in their case and, upon the written request from a tenured faculty member denied promotion, shall receive in writing from the department chairperson/school director the reasons for this decision.
