Title

School of Nursing: Standard On Writing Appointment, Promotion, And Tenure Reviews

Unit Standard

Introduction

Purpose

To provide the members of the APT committee with an overview of written reviews.

Scope of Applicability

These guidelines provide both the process for and content of APT reviews.

Standard

Two Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure (APT) Committee members are assigned to evaluate the performance in writing of faculty under consideration for promotion and tenure or requiring interim- or post-tenure reviews.

The primary reviewer is responsible for describing the educational and work background of the applicant and summarizing the performance and evaluating the impact and recognition the applicant's work has garnered in each of the three missions of the University: research, teaching, and service.

The secondary reviewer need not describe the educational and work background of the applicant nor summarize the performance of the applicant, but they must provide their own independent evaluations of the impact and recognition the applicant's work has garnered in each of the three missions of the University: research, teaching, and service.

Both primary and secondary reviewers should use the Standard on faculty appointment, promotion and tenure to write their reviews in the format directed herein.
