Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committee

The policies and procedures that govern the School’s Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion (RTP) Committee are included in University Policy. The Office of the Provost provides procedural and operational guidelines for this committee annually. This committee reviews materials relevant to the professional performance of Faculty who are candidates for reappointment, tenure, or promotion in rank, and to make recommendations to the Director on each of these personnel actions. The recommendations of this committee and the Director’s, together with the materials assembled for the committees, are forwarded to the Dean of the College.

This committee is composed of tenured full professors and FAC members who are tenured and at or above the rank of the applicant. Members are excluded from deliberations when they, their spouses, or a relative is under consideration, or when a candidate for promotion to a rank higher than their own is considered.
