[“Implementation of PM 92-04,” a memorandum issued by Ira S. Schoenwald, Associate Vice President, Faculty Affairs, 8/27/92]
In order to implement the provisions of PM 92-04, the administrative procedures and policies below are effective beginning with the 1992-1993 RTP review.
The times at which faculty may request review by the University RTP Committee are:
On or before the deadline for the submission of files at the beginning of the RTP review.
Within one of the seven-day rebuttal periods between the levels of review provided by the Unit Three Agreement (15.5). This pertains only to the rebuttal periods for the levels of review that take place prior to the Vice Presidential level. The University RTP Committee does not review recommendations made by the Vice President or decisions made by the President.
The Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs is the President’s Designee for requesting review by the University RTP Committee.
Review by the University RTP Committee will be automatic in the year of the decision on tenure or promotion. That is, all faculty up for review for tenure and promotion (including early tenure and promotion) will be reviewed by the University RTP Committee.
