Faculty Evaluation, Promotion and Tenure (FEPT)

Other Important Information


  • Alternate Pathways to Promotion and Tenure  – program in discussion, if approved, would (a) provide tenured Associate Professors the opportunity to be considered for promotion in ways beyond the traditional pathway, and (b) provide an opportunity for some non-tenurable faculty to achieve tenure.
  • Streamlining the Annual Evaluation Process – allows fully promoted professors to waive annual review by the unit review committee and eliminates requirement for documenting internal service.
