Review of Promotion (Tenure) Folder and Portfolio
each portfolio is verified, the ILS
must write a memorandum for inclusion in the corresponding
promotion (tenure) folder. This
memorandum must either certify that the portfolio is complete and
accurate, or it must describe any discrepancies that the applicant has
declined to correct. Each
memorandum must also include one of the following three statements:
recommend FOR the promotion (tenure) of this faculty member, or
! I recommend AGAINST the promotion
(tenure) of this faculty member, or
! I do not
have a recommendation regarding the promotion (tenure) of this faculty member.
ILS may include additional information and rationale to explain
or clarify this statement. The
ILS must forward a copy of this memorandum to the applicant. The ILS then delivers the portfolio to the Deanís office where it is held for review by the
Division Promotion Committee. The
Dean does not review these materials, however, until after the Division
Committee has completed its own recommendations.
promotion portfolio and promotion folder are the primary sources of
information for review by all decision makers in the process.
At the conclusion of each step in the deliberation process, the
committee or subsequent supervisors must make a recommendation for
or against promotion (tenure), with justification in either case, using Form R,
Promotion and Tenure Recommendations.
