Forest and Wildlife Ecology - Department Policies - Ad Hoc Promotion and Tenure Committees
Ad hoc committee that works with Chair on final stages of promotion and tenure packages
In our department's promotion and tenure processes, the Chair is responsible for three critical activities that may be outside the individual's disciplinary focus: (1) solicitation of external and internal reviewers, (2) preparation of the Chair's letter on behalf of the Department, and (3) critical review of candidate statements. In order to adequately support the Chair in these activities and to best support candidates for promotion, the Chair may appoint an ad hoc promotion committee for candidates for promotion to associate and to full professor. The ad hoc promotion committee is advisory to the Chair and may assist in the preparation of the promotion package in four ways.
- Provide recommendations for suitable, arm's-length reviewers for the candidate's materials.*
- Provide short biographical sketches of the external reviewers for inclusion in the tenure package.
- Provide critical reviews of the candidate's required statements.
- Provide input and review of the Chair's letter.
