University Tenure, Permanent Status, and Promotion Nominations 2015-16
Faculty members being considered for tenure, permanent status, and/or promotion in the
academic year 2015-16 must be made aware of the website URL where they can find the
University’s “Guidelines and Information Regarding the Tenure, Permanent Status and Promotion Process for 2015-2016”.
This information also should be given to new faculty to familiarize them with our tenure
and promotion process. Faculty should be aware, however, that the “Guidelines” are updated annually.
Academic Personnel will send a list of candidates to those units/departments that have
tenure and permanent status accruing faculty. The list has the date a faculty member
began accruing time towards tenure/permanent status. Please notify Janet Malphurs at
273-1737 or firstname.lastname@example.org of any necessary corrections.
The candidate must certify that his or her tenure and/or promotion packet is complete
before departmental review and voting occurs. Nominees must organize their packet
according to a Template, available in the Online Promotion and Tenure (OPT) system,
including the order of documents, and numbers and titles of sections.
