Appointments & Promotion Guidelines

Guidelines for Promotion and Tenure

The College of Nursing follows the guidelines in the University Handbook for Appointed Personnel concerning policies for Promotion and Tenure; in addition, the college faculty has developed guidelines for faculty use. The College's promotion and tenure committee advises the Dean who, in turn, must write a recommendation to be forwarded to the Provost. The University Advisory Committee on Promotion and Tenure reviews the Dean's recommendation and makes recommendations to the President concerning the individual faculty member. The guidelines developed by the College of Nursing Promotion and Tenure Committee and accepted by the College of Nursing faculty follow.
