Model Tenure Track Process Statutes :
1. Appointment and Promotions :
** The University’s policy on appointments (including subsequent reappointments) and on promotions follows herewith.
** It expresses the institutional philosophy in these matters and describes the qualifications for the various ranks in terms of four major areas of consideration, together with indications of the relative importance of these areas and possible sources of information for evaluations.
Bases for Appointment and Promotion :
For appointment, or for promotion to a higher rank, a candidate is evaluated in terms of effectiveness in four principal areas :
2. Scholarship, research, or other creative work
4. Personal characteristics
** Not all faculty members excel in each of these areas, but distinction or promise, especially in either of the first two, constitute the chief basis for appointment and promotion. Even though teaching may be more difficult to evaluate than scholarship, research, or creative work, it should not therefore be given a place of secondary consideration in an overall rating.
1.2.1 Teaching :
** Teaching is admittedly difficult to define precisely or to assess accurately. It is commonly considered to include a person’s knowledge of the major field of study, awareness of developments in it, skill in communicating to students and in arousing their interest, ability to stimulate them to think critically, to have them appreciate the interrelationship of fields of knowledge, and to be concerned with applications of knowledge to vital human problems.
1.2.2 Scholarship, Research, or Other Creative Work :
** A faculty member’s scholarship, research, and other creative work should make a contribution to the particular field of interest and serve as an indication of professional competence.
** The result of this kind of activity normally finds expression in publication or other media appropriate to the field, and where appropriate, should be reflected in teaching. In no case, however, should a person’s productive effort be measured by mere quantity.
