Guidelines for Submission of Rank and Tenure Applications by Tenure-Line Faculty

Rank and Tenure are at the heart of a mutually acknowledged and mutually beneficial long-term relationship between the tenure-line faculty and the university. They deserve special attention throughout the faculty member’s career at the university. The Faculty Handbook spells out the larger frame of reference for this relationship.  The guidelines for the submission of rank and tenure application by tenure-line faculty are intended to clarify the application procedures and requirements for tenure-line faculty members by providing additional information from the University Committee on Rank and Tenure (UCRT) to applicants and their units.
