TENURED FACULTY REVIEW AND DEVELOPMENT
SOURCE: Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
The purpose of Tenured Faculty Review and Development is to assure that the talents of each
faculty member are being utilized in ways that best serve the interests of the students, the
institution, the academic discipline and the individual. It is recognized that the interest and
expertise of the individual faculty member may change during the course of a career, so tenured
faculty could, when appropriate, encourage and assist faculty to adjust the mix and balance of
commitments among the evaluation categories of teaching, research and other scholarly activities,
- Tenured Faculty Review and Development will occur every four years and will be scheduled to
coincide with the end of the merit period.
- Units will provide an assessment of the faculty member's professional development proposal
and accomplishments. If specific needs for improvement are identified, a plan for this purpose
will be developed jointly by the faculty member and the unit. A standard university report form
will be used.
- Data gathered for use in merit reviews will also be used in the Tenured Faculty Review and
Development process. Additional data may be submitted for the tenured faculty review.
- Tenured faculty reviews are the responsibility of the tenured faculty of each unit.
- Tenured faculty review reports shall be forwarded first to the dean for review and then to the
provost for review. The original review report and all subsequent responses shall be included
in the faculty member's personnel file.
- Decisions that result from a tenured faculty review may be appealed by the faculty member to
the Faculty Appeals Committee.
