"Simplified" Performance Reviews

NTT Faculty members who are in their ninth year of consecutive employment, or and any subsequent third year of consecutive employment thereafter (e.g., 12th, 15th, 18th, etc., must complete a Simplified Performance Review as described in the applicable CBA. Each academic year, guidelines for the “simplified” performance reviews for Full-Time NTT Faculty are distributed by the Office of the Provost. The “Simplified” performance review concludes with the College’s and determination. The period of performance to be reviewed is the three full academic years of consecutive appointments, including that portion of the current appointment, which is subject to evaluation and assessment at the time of the review. Each Full-Time NTT Faculty who must complete a Simplified Performance Review is required to submit documentation as described in the appropriate CBA. At a minimum, the candidate’s file must contain a narrative statement, updated curriculum vita, and other appropriate supporting documents based on the candidate’s responsibilities (i.e., Instruction, Clinical, Practitioner, or Research).

Each Full-Time NTT Faculty member is discussed by the committee which votes on a recommendation for renewal of the Faculty member’s appointment. The Director independently assesses the accomplishments of each NTT Faculty member and forwards to the Dean her/his recommendation and the committee's recommendation. The Director informs the Full-Time NTT Faculty member of the Ad Hoc RTP Committee's deliberations and provides the Faculty member a copy of the recommendation that the Director sends to the Dean. Full-Time NTT Faculty members whose appointments will not be renewed must be notified by the timelines established in the applicable CBA whether lack of adequate satisfaction with performance or the absence of anticipated continuing programmatic need or budgeted resources to support the position is the reason.
