Promotion

FTNTT faculty members who have completed at least six (6) consecutive years of service and at least two (2) successful Full Performance Reviews may apply for promotion at the time of their second Full Performance Review or with any scheduled performance review thereafter. The criteria, guidelines and procedures for FTNTT promotions are included in the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). As required by the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), evidence of significant accomplishments in performance and professional development is required. Accomplishments and/or contributions in the area of university citizenship, when they exist, will contribute to the FTNTT faculty member’s overall record of accomplishment. The College’s Non-Tenure Track Promotion Advisory Board (NPAB) shall be composed of FTNTT faculty representatives. The NPAB will review the applications for promotion and make a recommendation to the Dean.

After five (5) full years in rank, an Associate Professor or Associate Lecturer can stand for the second promotion to Full Professor or Senior Lecturer in her/his 6th year.
