Ad Hoc Committees of the FAC

a. Promotion Committee

(See UR 3342-6-15 and CBA 2012 Addendum A.)

Each Spring term, the Faculty Advisory Committee shall review all SLIS faculty members below the rank of associate or full professor and nominate, by simple majority vote, a list of faculty to be considered for promotion. Nominated faculty are notified by the Director and permitted to withdraw their names if they choose. In the Fall semester of those years when promotions will be considered, the Director convenes and chairs, as a non-voting member, an Ad Hoc Promotion Committee. This committee consists of all tenured members of the FAC whose rank is higher than that of the faculty member being considered for promotion. Promotion committees must consist of at least four members. If four members are not available, the Dean of CCI will be asked to appoint additional members from other schools. No member shall be present while the committee discusses or votes on the promotion of a spouse or relative and no member other than the Director (who shall not be present when his/her own promotion is discussed) shall be present while the committee discusses or votes on promotions to a rank higher than that of the individual member.

 

b. Tenure Committee

(See UR 3342-6-14 and CBA 2012 Addendum B.)

In those years when faculty tenure is to be considered, the Director chairs the Ad Hoc Tenure Committee as a non-voting member. The Tenure Committee convenes in the Fall semester and consists of all tenured members of the FAC. If fewer than four members of the FAC are eligible to serve on the Ad Hoc Tenure Committee, the Dean of CCI will be asked to appoint additional members from other schools. No member of the committee shall be present when the committee deliberates or votes on the tenure of an individual in a rank higher than that of the individual member of the tenure committee, or on the tenure of a spouse or relative.

 

c. Reappointment Committee

(See UR 3342-6-16 and CBA 2012 Addendum C)

In those years when reappointments must be made, the Director chairs the Ad Hoc Reappointment Committee as a non-­voting member. The reappointment committee will be composed of all tenured members. If fewer than four members of the FAC are eligible to serve on the Ad Hoc Reappointment Committee, the Dean of CCI will be asked to appoint additional members from other schools. No member of the committee may be present when the committee deliberates or votes on the reappointment of an individual in a rank higher than that of the individual member of the reappointment committee, or on the reappointment of a spouse or relative.

 

d. FTNTT Review Committee

In those years when reviews of full-time non-tenure track faculty must be made, the Director chairs the Ad Hoc FTNTT Review Committee as a non-­voting member. The committee will be composed of all tenured members. If fewer than four members of the FAC are eligible to serve on the Ad Hoc Reappointment Committee, the Dean of CCI will be asked to appoint additional members from other schools. In addition, NTT faculty members who have successfully completed two full performance reviews also participate in the performance review of an NTT candidate. No member of the committee may be present when the committee reviews an individual in a rank higher than that of the individual member of the review committee, or on the review of a spouse or relative.

 

e. Other Ad Hoc Committees

An Ad Hoc Committee should be established for the review of this FAC Handbook. The FAC may establish additional Ad Hoc committees as necessary. These committees will be inactivated at the completion of their task.
