The tenure and promotion reviews you will conduct this year and the advance work you will do to prepare for next year's reviews are among the most important activities in the academy.
Those individuals whom we invite to join the senior faculty will continue to shape the University's academic aspirations and profile for the next generation. It is extremely important that your reviews be conducted in strict accordance with University procedures and by-laws, that they be characterized (and perceived to be characterized) by fairness, and that you apply appropriate and rigorous standards in forming your evaluations and recommendations. The Guidelines for the Evaluation of Faculty: Annual Evaluations, Promotion and Tenure will serve as a useful reference on the process.
