Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure, and Promotion (RTP) Committee for TT Faculty

The policies and procedures which govern the School’s Ad Hoc Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion (RTP) Committee are included in University Policy. The Ad Hoc RTP Committee is a recurrent ad hoc committee whose functions are assigned by university policies, including the CBA, the University Policy Register, and guidelines from the Provost’s office. Within these limits, the Committee applies more explicit School-adopted criteria and standards for reappointment, tenure, and promotion as set forth in below in this Handbook. Membership is composed of all tenured faculty members in the School at or above the rank that the faculty member under consideration is applying for. Where there are not enough School faculty members to populate the committee, faculty members from other cognate departments will be appointed to the committee by the Director, following consultation with the FAC, the Dean and the candidate(s). 

The RTP committee reviews materials relevant to the professional performance of faculty who are candidates for reappointment, tenure, or promotion in rank and makes recommendations to the Director on each of these personnel decisions.  The recommendations of this committee and that of the Director are forwarded to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
