Tenure & Promotion:

Tenure/promotion is a shared collegial process of accomplishment, evaluation, and recognition.  The tenure decision is one of the most important decisions in which a professional in higher education may be involved, for it is a shared undertaking that establishes an individual’s sense of his or her own professionalism and the university community’s recognition of it. Tenure guarantees annual reappointment for the academic year until voluntary resignation, retirement, removal for just cause (incompetence or misconduct) or layoff.
