Rank and Tenure Executive Committee Charges 2020-2021

Rank & Tenure Executive Committee

This committee is elected by the faculty to gather the information needed to evaluate professors seeking tenure, promotion, and midterm review.  The Committee also investigates how institutional racism impacts our rank and tenure policies and identifies steps to eradicate that impact.

For 2020-21, the Executive Committee will consider and recommend to the R&T Committee how, when reviewing an application for tenure or promotion, to consider course evaluations during the pandemic (noting the absence for Winter 2020 and possible difficulties in Summer and Fall 2020, and perhaps beyond) and investigate how institutional racism impacts our rank and tenure policy and identify steps to eradicate this impact.
