Tenure Track/Tenured Promotion

All regular, full-time tenured and probationary faculty are eligible at certain times for promotion review according to years of service and rank differentiations. These are described in the materials distributed annually by the Office of the Provost.

Although tenure is held in the Regional Campuses, academic rank is held in the department, school, or college. Therefore, the individual should refer to his/her academic department/school/college handbook for criteria for promotion. The criteria for promotion are established by the department/school/college in consultation with faculty.

A major consideration for promotion to all ranks will be documented evidence of strength in teaching and service/university citizenship. In the area of citizenship, evidence of campus leadership commensurate with rank should be demonstrated. Scholarship that is recognized nationally and internationally tends to be necessary for promotion to full professor.
