Annual review of probationary, tenure-track Faculty for reappointment shall be undertaken each year until consideration for tenure. Annual review is often undertaken at approximately the same time as tenure and promotion decisions, but specific timetables are established annually for each type of review and distributed by the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs.
As with tenure and promotion reviews, the candidate prepares evidence in support of a favorable recommendation which is presented to the unit administrator. Included in the file must be a recent peer evaluation of teaching. The candidate and the unit administrator jointly submit for Certification of File Completeness. Probationary Faculty members are encouraged to meet personally with their unit administrators concerning the contents of their files.
Each tenured member of the Trumbull Campus Personnel Action Committee reviews the files of the candidate and makes an independent written evaluation for or against the candidate. The Personnel Action Committee (chosen by the Faculty Council Chair) meets to discuss the evaluations of each candidate. The written evaluations and votes are collected by the Faculty Council Chair, who tabulates the votes and writes a letter of recommendation to the Campus Dean and notifies each candidate in writing of the committee’s recommendations.
