All first- and second-year NTT faculty will submit review materials no later than February 15 of any academic year. Faculty in these years of appointment will be notified of any performance problems no later than April 15, in advance of the standard May 1 notification of reappointment. A Full Performance review, requiring the submission of a file, will take place in the third year of appointment and every third year thereafter.
Reappointment is based upon satisfactory performance of previously assigned responsibilities recorded in the workload statement of the faculty member. If the contract specifies that the candidate will have other, non-instructional responsibilities, or if the faculty member has been granted teaching load equivalencies for non-instructional activities, performance in those areas should figure in the evaluation. However, excellence in the instructional area is the most important factor in the review, no matter what the nature and extent of non-instructional activities.
