Presentation of Supporting Materials
Academic Credentials and University Experience
(a) Candidates for tenure are responsible for presenting the necessary documents for consideration by the Ad Hoc Tenure Committee.
(b) Specific guidelines for the tenure file are provided at the end of this tenure section of the Department Handbook.
(c) Materials reviewed for tenure for persons hired at the instructor or TT assistant professor rank shall consist primarily of those items generated since the initial hiring. The vitae submitted in applying for the position should be used as a baseline, with materials already published or listed as forthcoming being given less weight than those produced after the submitted vitae. Exceptions will be made when incoming faculty are explicitly given credit toward tenure for prior experience.
