Promotion & Tenure

As noted from PS 36, the university seeks to employ and maintain faculty with superior qualifications to advance its mission and to nurture and support the work of those faculty members. The decision to award tenure is of distinguished and central importance. The university will do so only through a rigorous, careful process of examination and deliberation. Accordingly, the decision to tenure entails the presumption of professional excellence. It implies the expectation of an academic career that will develop and grow in quality and value, and one that will be substantially self-supervised and self-directed.
