Tenure

There is no application for tenure per se. Faculty are automotically considered for tenure as part of their 7th reappointment to their eighth year of service. Preparing for tenure consideration encompasses all the steps you would take for reappointment (updating your personnel file, submission of an action-specific form C), but also includes an additional step: the preparation of your scholarly materials for consideration by your external evaluators. These external evaluators will provide letters of assessment regarding your scholarship as it pertains to tenure; those letters will considered by the review committees as part of your personnel file.
