Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotions (RTP) Committee | Kent State University

Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotions (RTP) Committee

The Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotions Committee is composed of all full professors in the Department plus tenured members of the FAC.  In the event that a Regional Campus member of the FAC is not tenured, a tenured Regional Campus representative, appointed by the Chair, will sit on the Promotions Committee in his/her stead.  The policies and procedures which govern the Department’s Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion (RTP) Committee are included in University Policy 3342-6.  Procedural and operational guidelines for this committee are provided annually by the Office of the Provost.  This committee reviews materials relevant to the professional performance of faculty who are candidates for reappointment, tenure, or promotion in rank, and makes recommendations to the Chair on each of these personnel decisions.  It is the responsibility of this committee to provide a detailed review of the quality of each candidate’s scholarship, teaching, and service.  The recommendations of this committee and of the Chair, together with the materials assembled for the committees, are forwarded to the Dean of the College.
