Review of Rank and Tenure Procedures
The Task Force reviewed rank and tenure procedures at other institutions and made best practice recommendations to improve the rank and tenure system. The Faculty Affairs Committee approved some recommendations from the task force and will continue the finalization of other recommendations in the next academic year.
Members: Aldo Billingslea and Betty Young (Co-Chairs), Dale Achabal, Rachel He, David Hess, Barry Posner, Amy Shachter, Debbie Tahmassebi
The Task Force was formed to continue the work of the Adjudication of Alleged Academic Integrity Violations Task Force which was unsuccessful in creating a new University policy due to concerns from the faculty community. The new task force will develop a broad statement of University standards of academic integrity and define protocols for reporting and adjudicating undergraduate academic integrity violations, and is pending the selection of task force members to be completed in fall 2018.
Members: Matthew Duncan (Student Life), Phyllis Brown (English), John Ifcher (Economics), Laurie Poe (Math), David Heil (student) and one additional undergraduate student.
