Performance and Full Performance Reviews

The Full Performance Reviews of FTNTT faculty members who are in their third or sixth year of consecutive employment are governed by the applicable CBA.  Each academic year, guidelines for the Full Performance Reviews for FTNTT faculty are distributed by the Office of Faculty Affairs. The Full Performance Review concludes with the College or, if applicable, the division of the regional campuses' level of review and determination.  The period of performance to be reviewed is the three (3) full academic years of consecutive appointments including that portion of the third appointment which is subject to evaluation and assessment at the time of the review.  Each FTNTT faculty member who must complete a Full Performance Review will submit a dossier as described in the CBA.
