Considerations for Tenure

University Guidelines identify the specific standards for tenure by which the School adheres. That is, the School’s guidelines for tenure mirror university policy. In general, tenure is established when a candidate demonstrates involvement, and, potential for leadership, in service to the Program, School, and/or College through ad hoc and/or standing committee membership. A description of the nature and quantity of the candidate’s service is required and must be articulated within the contextual statement using factors such as those identified in this Handbook. In particular, responsiveness to the needs of the Program and the needs of students must be demonstrated.
