FAC 4.B.9. Constituency of the Initial Level of Review.

 

(1)   If the department is the initial level of review, the committee shall include all tenured members of the department, including the department chair, if tenured. An individual participating in the departmental review is disqualified from subsequently participating as a member of the college renewal and tenure committee when the committee reviews the credentials of the candidate from the same department.

(2)   If there are no tenured faculty in the department, the college renewal and tenure committee shall be the functional equivalent of the initial level of review.

(3)   Subject to the requirement that all initial levels of review be comprised of no fewer than three persons, each college may establish rules for the constituency of the initial level of review. Unless the college’s policies (approved by the college faculty, the Faculty Senate and the Chancellor) establish another framework, the following conditions shall pertain to the initial level of review:

(a)   If there is only one tenured faculty member in the department deliberating and voting, he or she shall be joined by the college renewal and tenure committee for the purpose of acting as the initial level of review, subject to the following considerations: (1) the member of the department is entitled to one vote; and (2) the members of the college committee shall, in total, have two votes, with the vote of each individual member weighted to equal a proportionate share based on the number of college committee members participating (e.g., if there are seven members of the college committee, each participating individual shall be entitled to a 2/7th vote).

(b)   If there are two tenured faculty members in the department deliberating and voting, they shall be joined by the college renewal and tenure committee for the purpose of acting as the initial level of review, subject to the following considerations: (1) each member of the department is entitled to one vote; and (2) the members of the college committee shall, in total, have one vote, with the vote of each individual member weighted to equal a proportionate share based on the number of college committee members participating (e.g., if there are seven members of the college committee, each participating individual shall be entitled to a 1/7th vote).

(4)   If the college renewal and tenure committee participates in the initial level of review, it does not subsequently act as the second level of review. The chair of the college renewal and tenure committee shall serve as the chair of this ad hoc committee.
