Reappointment

Prior to the tenure decision all tenure-track faculty receive a departmental reappointment review in the spring of each year, starting in the second year of their initial probationary appointment (normally three years) and ending in the spring semester before the tenure dossier is due. This review is conducted by the tenured members of the department under the direction of the department chair.

Faculty in full-time tenure-ineligible ranks also receive departmental reappointment reviews, usually starting in the second year of the initial probationary appointment (normally a three-year period), and repeated in the next-to-last year of each subsequent appointment period (normally a three-year period).
