University Citizenship

  1. Acceptable evidence of university citizenship may include:

    (a)        membership on University, College, or Department committees and councils;

    (b)        service to the community beyond the University but in which service is representative of the University, College, or Department.
  2. Note that simply holding a position as a committee/task force member or as a consultant is not, by itself, a particularly strong credential toward tenure.  The candidate also should provide evidence bearing on the quality and extent of the contributions which have been made to the organization in question.
