The Select Committee on Bi-Decanal Appointment, Promotion and Tenure is comprised of two committees: Sub-Committee for Appointment and Promotion to All Bi-Decanal Unqualified Ranks and Sub-Committee for Appointment and Promotion to All Bi-Decanal Qualified Clinical and Research Ranks. The promotion process will be jointly managed by the Deans of both decanal units.
Selection of the Sub-Committee members will be decided by the Dean or Dean’s designee from each decanal units.
Promotions of the Faculty are initiated by the appropriate Department Chair from either or both of the respective decanal units. Proposed promotions are then referred to the appropriate Sub-Committee for review and appropriate action.
The Appropriate Sub-Committee will engage in deliberations related to faculty proposed for promotion. Following said deliberations, a vote of the Sub-Committee will be conducted. Results of the vote will be reported using the following four categories: in favor, opposed, abstained and recused / conflict of interest. The aforementioned actions of the Sub-committee will be complied by the Chair of the Sub-Committee and transmitted to the Dean for further consideration.
Members of the Appointment and Promotions Sub-Committees must recuse themselves from deliberations and voting if they have a conflict of interest with any individual being considered for promotion. Conflicts of interest include, but are not limited to, a close personal relationship, a close professional relationship, a financial/personal property relationship or an employer/employee relationship.
The Committee shall consist of two (2) separate and independently functioning Sub-committees.
The committee is deactivated.
