The Tenure and Promotions Committee serves as an evaluating body for the pretenure review, tenure, and promotion. Its responsibility is to ensure that the review process is fair and that the final recommendation is based on sound documentation.
The role of the TPC is outlined in the the Faculty Handbook and in parts of this website dealing with Faculty Reviews.
