Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committee | Kent State University

Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committee

The structure, membership, and procedures of these committees are specified in the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the University Policy Register.  Procedural and operational guidelines for these committees are provided by the Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs each year.  The central functions of these committees are to gather and review materials relevant to the professional performance of faculty candidates for reappointment, tenure, or promotion in rank, and to make recommendations to the Chairperson on each of these personnel decisions.  The recommendations of these committees and the Chairperson, together with the materials assembled by and for the committee, are forwarded to the Dean of the College.  The Chairperson gives each candidate for reappointment, tenure, or promotion a copy of his/her recommendation or a letter summarizing the recommendation, and a summary of the committee's deliberations.  Confidentiality and anonymity must be observed in the deliberative processes.
