Regional Campus Faculty | Kent State University

Regional Campus Faculty

1.         Regional Campus Faculty

            Regional Campus faculty have full voting rights in the Department of Biological Sciences and serve on appropriate Departmental committees, including the UGCC, the FAC, and the Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committees.  Graduate faculty membership is open to Regional Campus faculty who meet the criteria.

2.         Workloads, Reappointment, Tenure

            Workloads, course assignments, and salary recommendations for Regional Campus faculty are determined by the individual Regional Campus Deans.  Reappointment, tenure, and promotion recommendations for Regional Campus faculty are made by the Chairperson with the advice of the Department's Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion Committees.  Recommendations from the Chairperson and those from the committee are forwarded to the Dean of the College, to the Vice president for Regional Campuses, and the appropriate Regional Campus Dean.  The guidelines for reappointment, tenure, and promotion given in Section V (Appendix II and Appendix III) are used for Regional Campus faculty.  Instructional expertise and continued professional growth must also be evident if a faculty member is to be recommended for reappointment, tenure, and/or promotion. Promotion to the rank of Full Professor, in particular, requires that a faculty member be accomplished in teaching, research, and scholarship.  In this context, it should be noted explicitly that published research on the teaching process and other similar scholarship may be considered as acceptable evidence of continued professional growth.
