Tenure and Promotion Appeals
This committee is composed of tenured full professors selected by a vote of tenured faculty members from the respective units. Elections for membership to the committee are conducted by and under the auspices of the Senate of the Faculty. This committee is composed of tenured full professors who are not serving as a department chair and who do not hold an administrative rank higher than department chair. Members may not serve on a Dean's Advisory Committee, the Tenure and Promotion Review Committee, or the Academic Freedom and Faculty Responsibility Committee, while serving on the Tenure and Promotion Appeals Committee.
