Overall consideration for promotion includes:

·    Documented evidence of outstanding scholarship
·    Documented evidence of effective teaching is necessary for promotion in rank for those whose assignment includes instruction. (Faculty whose responsibilities do not include teaching may use annual peer and/or administrative evaluation.)
·    Documented evidence of service

Faculty whose appointment is at the regional campuses have a primary responsibility for lower-division instruction. Consequently, a major consideration for promotion shall be given to effective teaching and service activities.
