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 in service to the profession at the regional, state, or national and/or international level. Potential for emerging leadership to the profession at the national and/or international level is required. 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.
