The committee is composed of tenured faculty and must include at least a 25% female and/or minority representation. Three members of the College P&T Committee are elected by their peers for terms of three years.The Dean will appoint the fourth member and will also appoint as fifth member a departmentally-approved alternate from an academic unit not represented on the committee. Elected members may not serve consecutive terms, members cannot serve if being considered for promotion, and no member can serve on more than one P&T committee.
The College P&T Committee is charged with reviewing all submitted materials, providing any required materials, conducting a fair, objective, independent, and substantive review of the candidate's dossier based on department, college, and University criteria and standards and make recommendations regarding retention, tenure or promotion. The recommendation shall include a written rationale. If the intermediate review committee's recommendation does not concur with those of the primary review committee or the primary administrative reviewer, the committee's rationale must explain the point(s) of difference.
The intermediate review committee is also responsible for:
- Reviewing, making suggestions for modification, and approving the role and scope, criteria and standards documents of the departments,
- Conducting the election for faculty representatives to the college and UPT Committees, and
- Preparing a written recommendation, with vote tally, concerning the retention, tenure, and/or promotion of each candidate for review.
