The quality of teaching is very important in evaluating a Faculty member for tenure.  No candidate should expect to be recommended for tenure without evidence of continued excellence in teaching.  Consistently below average teaching (SSI averages) may be a basis for denying tenure.

The quality of course content, organization of information, evaluation of the candidate’s teaching by RTP, interest level of the students, student successes, and student evaluations help measure the quality of a Faculty member’s teaching.  A candidate shall not be recommended for tenure if he/she has not complied with the University’s Faculty Code of Professional Ethics as appears in the University Policy Register.
