Preliminary Assessments of the Merit File
- In each merit category, the quality and quantity of items included on the Merit Award Summary Form will be taken into account.
- Assessment of the quality of a faculty member’s research, teaching, and service performance will be based on the criteria contained in the Evidence sub-section of the Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion section of this handbook.
- To ensure that publications are only considered for one merit period, only works that have appeared in print or via online publication will be considered for merit.
- Post-publication recognition (citations, reviews, awards, etc.) that occurred during the merit period will be considered even for works published prior to the merit period.
