Ad hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committee
The policies and procedures which govern the Department’s Ad hoc Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion (RTP) Committee are included in University Policy. Procedural and operational guidelines for this committee are provided annually by the Office of the Provost. The RTP Committee is comprised of all full professors in the Department and the elected, tenured members of the FAC. No members of the Committee may participate in decisions that involve promotion to a rank higher than they hold. The members of the Committee review materials relevant to the professional performance of faculty who are candidates for reappointment, tenure, or promotion in rank, and submit written and signed evaluations to the Chair for each candidate on each of these personnel decisions. The signed evaluation forms of the committee members and the recommendation of the Chair, together with the materials assembled for the Committee, are forwarded to the Dean of the College.
