Necessary Conditions for Annual Reappointment

a.  Documented evidence of suitable progress, given years in service and number of years until mandatory tenure review, in scholarship. What counts as “documented evidence” is addressed in Subsection D below.

b.   Documented evidence of suitable progress, given years in service and number of years until mandatory tenure review, in the art and practice of teaching.

c.   Documented evidence of suitable progress, given years in service and number of years until mandatory tenure review, in service. Contributions beyond minimal participation in Department service functions (such as attending departmental meetings and FAC meetings), which make significant positive contributions to the advancement of the educational, scholarly, governance, and goals and missions of the Department, College, University, Campus, or community, will be included here.

After initial reappointment to a 2nd year, probationary tenure-track faculty members are expected to provide for each annual reappointment review documented evidence for each of the activities to be considered under Scholarship, Teaching and University Citizenship. Please review Subsection D, below, which provides (a) guidelines and examples of what is acceptable as documented evidence for Scholarship, Teaching and University Citizenship, and (b) the criteria for evaluating or weighting the quantity and quality of documented evidence of Scholarship, Teaching and University Citizenship for probationary tenure-track faculty members.

In each instance, a judgment as to whether a candidate has attained suitable progress given years in service and number of years until mandatory tenure review (including quality and quantity of achievement or output or performance) in scholarship, teaching, and university citizenship must be rendered by each member of the Department’s Ad Hoc Advisory Committee.
