Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion of Tenure Track (TT) Faculty

Many factors and criteria, both subjective and objective, are considered in recommending a faculty member for reappointment, tenure, and promotion including differentials in assignments. 

For the purposes of this policy, "scholarship" is broadly defined to include research, scholarly and creative work.  “Teaching” is broadly defined to include classroom instruction, curriculum development, course design and revision, research supervision, and mentoring among other related activities.  "Service" is broadly defined to include administrative service to the university, professional service to the faculty member's discipline, and the provision of professional expertise to public and private entities beyond the university (University Policy Register, section 06-15, section A).  In addition, consideration of the candidate’s personal integrity and professional behavior will be a factor, with the expectation that the Fashion School faculty observe ethical standards in all aspects of the academic profession.
