President Donald R. Gerth
On the basis of a recommendation from the Academic Senate the following paragraph entitled “Language for RTP Evaluation” is added to page D30 of the Faculty Handbook, to be effective with the beginning of the Fall Quarter of 1984.
All evaluators are encouraged to limit the language summing up their recommendations for promotion to: highly recommend, recommend, recommend with reservations, or do not recommend. Evaluators who choose to use different language than the key words that indicate the level of evaluation for: “I highly recommend, recommend, recommend with reservations, or do not recommend” must send the ranking of their substitute language to the faculty member involved, the other evaluators in the process, and Faculty and Staff Affairs*.
