Tenure Lines

Proposal Procedures

Departments seeking authorization for a faculty line should submit appropriate materials to the Provost, who will consult with the Educational Policies Committee (EPC) regarding authorization of a new search. Materials to be submitted include: a rationale for and description of the position and how it contributes to institutional and departmental/program needs, tentative timeline for a search, a plan for actively seeking out diverse candidates for the position, and a draft position description. Final approval for a search comes from the President.   Materials submitted by the department, as revised through suggestions from the Provost and EPC, should be consulted throughout the process by the search committee as an aid in understanding the development of the current position description.
