Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion

The Department of Sociology criteria for the evaluation of Faculty have as their foundation the assumption that all Faculty are scholars and professionals; that as scholars each is committed to the University's missions of teaching, research and service.  As professionals, each is committed to advancing the discipline of sociology and criminology.  In both arenas, our Faculty are committed to the highest ethical standards in relations with students, in the conduct of research, and in presentations to the public.  In all our professional and scholarly roles all members of the Department adhere to the statement of the Code of Ethics of the American Sociological Association (June, 1997; or the Code of Ethics of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (March, 200; and to the “Redbook” (or the Policy and Documents Report, 1995) of the American Association of University Professors.
