PROMOTION AND TENURE EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS
(Approved: BFC 11/17/92)
1. All documents explaining or interpreting promotion and tenure criteria statements, including letters to referees, are to be regularly reviewed and approved by the faculty of the unit (department, school, college) in the same manner as the mission and criteria statement itself. Copies of all such texts are to be sent to all faculty in the unit and to the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs.
2. Explanatory documents and letters sent to referees are to be discussed as a part of the annual review for non-tenured, tenure-track faculty members so that they may understand all current statements and interpretations as well as those in effect when hired on tenure-track appointment.
