General Policies and Procedures for Promotion

  1. Beginning in academic year 2011-12, FTNTT faculty members who have completed at least six consecutive years of service and at least two successful Full Performance Reviews may apply for promotion at the time of their second Full Performance Review or any year thereafter. The criteria, guidelines and procedures for full-time non-tenure track (FTNTT) promotions are included in the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement. As required by the Collective Bargaining Agreement, evidence of significant accomplishments in performance and professional development is required. Accomplishments and/or contributions in University Citizenship, when they exist, will contribute to the FTNTT faculty member’s overall record of accomplishment however absence of University Citizenship will not detract from the promotion evaluation. The College’s ad hoc Full-Time Non-Tenure Track Promotion Advisory Board (NPAB) shall be composed as outlined in the current Collective Bargaining Agreement. If the CAE does not have sufficient numbers of faculty as outlined in the current Collective Bargaining Agreement and faculty from other Colleges may serve on NPAB. The CAE Dean will coordinate these NPAB actions with the Office of Faculty Affairs in the Provost’s Office. 
  2. Full-time non-tenure track faculty may self-nominate for promotion in accordance with the Full-Time Non-Tenure Track Collective Bargaining Agreement and the University Policy Register.
