Committee to Consider Faculty Handbook Revisions for Undergraduate Tenure and Promotion (elected) (elected to serve at least from Winter 2013 into the 2014-2015 academic year)

This committee, guided by the June 2012 report from the Committee for the Review of Undergraduate Tenure and Promotion, will propose changes to the undergraduate tenure and promotion sections in the Faculty Handbook and present them for faculty consideration. It is the faculty's hope that the committee will solicit information from areas of the faculty not otherwise represented. The membership of the committee will be comprised as follows:

  • Four members of the committee would be elected directly from and by the faculty of The College. Ideally, the elected representatives will include 2 professors, 1 associate professor, and 1 assistant professor. If, at the end of the nomination process, no one is qualified or willing to serve from a particular rank, that position will be added to the total for the next rank higher. As an example, if no assistant professor stands for election, the ballot will be to elect two associates.
  • Two members of the committee would be elected directly from and by the faculty of the Williams School. Ideally, the elected representatives will include 1 professor or associate professor and 1 assistant professor. If, at the end of the nomination process, no one is qualified or willing to serve from a particular rank, that position will be added to the total for the next rank higher. As an example, if no associate professor stands for election, the ballot will be to elect a professor.
  • No more than one representative will be elected from any department. Members of the Advisory Committee and the Faculty Review Committee are not eligible to serve.
