In the summer of each year a memorandum is sent to Academic Deans to initiate the post-tenure review process in the colleges. During this Dean's Level Audit, the dean of each college and his appointed committee review a sufficient number of tenured faculty in order to ensure that over a maximum of five years all tenured faculty are reviewed. Results of the Dean’s Level Audit are due in the Office of the Provost by October 15.
Outcomes of Annual Review
- If overall performance is satisfactory or better, faculty remain in the regular annual performance review process.
- If overall performace is overall satisfactory with a deficiency in a single area of performance, faculty enter into a Faculty Development Plan at unit level.
- If overall performance is unsatisfactory this results in faculty entering a Performance Improvement Plan.
