Retention, Promotion and Tenure guidelines

  • The retention, tenure and promotion (RTP) guidelines in this section of our site are used by each academic unit once per year to review the performance of the bargaining-unit faculty.  These reviews include: non-tenure track faculty for consideration for reappointment; tenure-track faculty as they progress toward or reach their tenure decision; and faculty seeking promotion.

The guidelines and criteria differ for each department and school depending on their distinctive missions and areas of focus.  All, however, include the basic categories: teaching, research, service and professional conduct.
