Tenure review process workshops

Third Year Review Workshop

The Vice Provost for Academic Affairs leads a discussion on the process of the third year review and provides information to junior faculty on how to prepare for this important review. This workshop is offered every fall. The Faculty Handbook describes the third year review:

“During the third or fourth year of a faculty member’s tenure-track period, the unit will conduct a comprehensive review of the faculty member’s performance relative to the University’s criteria for tenure. Each unit will develop procedures for this review, which must be approved by the dean and the Provost. The review will culminate in a written evaluation that makes a recommendation for reappointment or non-reappointment and discusses the reasons for the recommendation.”

Junior faculty mentors, department chairs, associate deans, and departmental staff involved in the tenure process are welcomed at this workshop.
