Refer to Section IV of the Faculty Handbook for university policies on promotion and tenure. All tenure and promotion dossiers must include sections titled “I. General Summary” and “II. Supporting Evidence.” Ideally, the supporting evidence should simply be a compilation of Annual Reports since initial hiring in the case of tenure, for the regularly scheduled post-tenure review in case of post-tenure review, and since the last promotion in the case of promotion. A third section titled “III. Other” may be used if there are accomplishments, which do not logically fit in sections I and II as defined below.

“III. Other” may also be used to address or to rebut concerns that may have been expressed in Administrative Reviews of previous Annual Reports.

The candidate should discuss areas of growth and development demonstrated by the Supporting Evidence.
