Vote on University Tenure, Promotions, and Appointments Committee (TPAC)

Following the March Town Hall discussion, the Faculty Council voted unanimously to support new processes to guide faculty governance in university-level promotion and tenure reviews and to nominate a writing committee to continue drafting the details of the new process. The newly endorsed processes include:

  • Forming a Tenure, Promotion, and Appointments Committee (TPAC)
  • Electing a faculty chair of TPAC
  • Implementing consistent, transparent review processes for TPAC
  • Implementing an advisory vote by TPAC elected faculty to the President/ Provost and Board of Trustees (BOT)
  • Implementing an advisory memo from TPAC elected faculty to the President/ Provost and BOT


A writing committee will begin work in the summer of 2015, and implementation of the new process is tentatively scheduled for the spring of 2016.
