Role of Salem Campus Faculty in Departmental Affairs

All full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty at the Salem Campus are members of their respective departmental faculty on the Kent Campus or in the Regional College, thereby sharing full faculty rights and responsibilities in their home departments.

Salem Campus faculty members are represented on a number of department, college, and university committees, such as faculty advisory committees and curriculum committees.  They participate in a variety of other matters relative to the academic responsibilities of their departments, including participation in departmental search committees, promotion and tenure committees, and appointment and reappointment committees.

Salem Campus faculty members hold rank within their respective academic departments and are then reviewed by their colleagues for reappointment, tenure, and promotion. However, when tenure is granted, it is limited to the Regional Campus system only.
