The Promotion Application Process
members must establish their eligibility for promotion by completing Form
P (Eligibility for Promotion) and submitting it to their dean by the
deadline specified in the timetable published by the Plan coordinator.
The dean verifies that all information supplied by the faculty
member is accurate and forwards the application to the appropriate vice
president for review and final approval of eligibility.
members who were not evaluated during the two years prior to the year in
which they apply for promotion must be evaluated in accordance with the Faculty
Evaluation Plan. Faculty
members who are not scheduled for evaluation during the year in which they
apply for promotion but who have been evaluated within the two years prior
to applying for promotion may elect to initiate any portion of the faculty
evaluation process to secure additional supporting material for promotion.
This process must follow the procedures set forth in the Faculty
Evaluation Plan. A
promotion candidate who is not required to undergo a full evaluation may
use any or all mandatory portions of the following evaluation components:
Functional Responsibilities Commentary (Form A-1).
! Class or
performance observations by the immediate line supervisor (ILS), dean,
and, if applicable, the program coordinator (Form B).
Faculty members may solicit letters of support from peers or use
the optional peer evaluation procedure specified in the Faculty
from recipients of service (Form C).
Summary and Performance Rating (Forms D-1 and D-2).
