Post Tenure Review - Guidelines


8.3.5 Evaluation of Personnel (Excerpt from the BOR Policy Manual - 800 Section)

8.3.5.4 Post Tenure Review for Tenured Faculty and Administrators

Each institution shall conduct post-tenure reviews of all tenured faculty members.  Each faculty member is to be reviewed five (5) years after the most recent promotion or personnel action, and reviews shall continue at five-year intervals unless interrupted by a further review for promotion.

Administrators who have tenure and who also have some teaching responsibilities will not be subject to post-tenure review as long as a majority of their duties are administrative in nature.  At such time as an administrator may return full-time to the faculty, she/he will be placed into the post-tenure review cycle and will be evaluated under those guidelines as a faculty member in the fifth year following the return to the faculty and at subsequent five year intervals (BoR Minutes, August 2007).

The institution president shall review and approve institutional post-tenure review policies, as well as any subsequent revisions.  These institutional policies must conform to the institution's mission and to USG procedures for post-tenure review.  Institutional policies also shall address cases in which a tenured faculty member's performance is deemed unsatisfactory (BoR Minutes, April 1996, p. 39-47; May 1996, p. 52; February 2007).
