Tenure Upon Appointment
The process for Tenure Upon Appointment will require the approval of the Dean of the college as well as the Senior Vice President for Health Affairs before the request is forwarded to the Provost and President for approval and recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
Requests for Tenure Upon Appointment are to be approved by the Dean, Senior Vice President for Health Affairs, the Provost and the President before the formal letter of offer is tendered to the candidate. The enclosed format is provided to facilitate future requests for tenure upon appointment. The request should be accompanied by a statement of reasons for the request and supporting documentation, including a statement justifying the special circumstances that warrant granting tenure as a condition of employment, the candidate’s complete curriculum vita, three letters of reference, the vote of the department faculty and recent teaching evaluations. Departments vote on tenure in all cases; in addition, the college should vote on tenure in cases of Associate Professors. Please send your requests to Ms. Hamleen Gregoire in room M-100.
