Candidates for tenure and promotion must apply to the department Chair not later than June 1 st in order that their applications can be considered by the DTPC and FTPC during the fall term (see Policy #77, section IV. Timing and Criteria). DTPC Meeting dates – mid to late November FTPC Meeting date – mid to late December UTPC Meeting date – February 27, 2008 (this was the 2008 date) Deadline for all material to arrive in the Secretariat’s Office is two weeks + prior to the meeting date. This allows time to sort the binders and have them to committee members for reviewing Decisions sent to all faculty members via a letter from the President the day following the UTPC meeting. For faculty who have been granted tenure, a letter is also sent by Lois Claxton, University Secretary, following the April Board meeting.
If DTPC or FTPC has significant reservations that could result in a negative recommendation, the Chair shall provide to the candidate: a complete copy of the file; and a written explanation of the nature of the reservations.
The file consists of: all evidence considered by the committee; the DTPC assessment; the outcome of deliberations at the previous levels; numerical record of votes taken; and any written statements, including reasons, by committee members who do not agree with the majority recommendation.
Sanitize the referees’ letters, memos of committee chairs and any written statements. The candidate should not be able to figure out who wrote the letter or statement or the identity of any referee who is being quoted. Remove any identifying references such as names, location where met, conferences attended, etc. Assign numbers to the referees and use in place of names. If material was provided to the candidate for DTPC meeting and the candidate is appearing at FTPC, use the sanitized material used at FTPC (and the same numbering system).
What does “arm’s length” mean when choosing a referee? “Arm’s length” reviewers should not be co-authors, former colleagues, thesis supervisor or adjunct professors in the department. If a reviewer is chosen who is not deemed to be “arm’s length” an explanation should be provided. How many copies of the dossier are needed – at the Faculty level; at the University level? The Faculty copies will differ from Faculty office to Faculty office so please check with your own representative. The University T&P Committee requires 13 copies. How many publications should a candidate submit? Typically 3-5 publications should be submitted. How many copies of the publications and cv are needed to send to referees? The Dean in consultation with the DTPC will decide how many referees are to be contacted, but it will be at least five.
Should we enclose teaching evaluations? No, the UTPC wants as concise a package as possible. If teaching evaluations are included at the Department or Faculty level they are to be removed prior to be sent to UTPC. Should student letters on teaching be included? No, unless they offer value to the dossier they should not be included. Should peer reviews on a candidate’s teaching be included? No, peer reviews should be summarized, but lengthy reviews should be excluded from the dossier. Should staples be used? No staples should be used. Dossiers should be 3-hole punched. Should dividers be used? Please check with your Faculty office for this information. Should the dossiers be bound before they are sent to the Faculty T&P Committee? No. The complete faculty dossier will be bound prior to going forward to UTPC, but they should not be bound prior to that time. Can the dossiers be printed double-sided? Yes.
