Tenure Policies and Procedures

Policy Approved By CLAS Council (2008)

Any individual who wishes to apply for early comprehensive review or tenure, or for full professor, must inform the primary unit chair and the Dean's Advisory Committee (through the Associate Dean who is ex officio member of the committee) of the intent to do so no later than the first day of the fall semester. This deadline applies to any unscheduled comprehensive, tenure, or promotion review. Optimally, this process should begin the previous spring term.
