University Tenure, Permanent Status and Promotion Nominations, 2000-2001
David R. Colburn, Interim Provost
Faculty members being considered for tenure, permanent status and/or promotion in the Academic Year 2000-2001 must receive a copy of this memorandum along with the attached guidelines in order to prepare their packets. Both documents should also be given to new faculty to help them become familiar with our tenure and promotion process and to aid them in preparing their materials for future consideration. Faculty should be aware, however, that this memo is updated annually to reflect changes as needed.
The following documents are pertinent to the nomination process for the academic year 2000-2001:
1. Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) 6C1-7.003, 7.010, 7.013, 7.019, 7.022 for faculty, 6C1-7.025 for P.K. Yonge faculty and IFAS County Extension Agents, and 6C1-6.009 for County Extension Agents,
2. University Constitution, Article V, Section 5,
3. Agreement between the Board of Regents and United Faculty of Florida, Articles 14 and 15 for faculty members in the Collective Bargaining Unit.
A computer listing is enclosed for those units/departments that have tenure and permanent status accruing faculty. The listing has the date a faculty member began accruing time towards tenure/permanent status. Effective May 1, 1995, the contractual language of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the University rules (6C1-7.019 FAC) specify that any time a faculty member spends on leave of absence or reduced FTE will not count toward eligibility for tenure except by mutual agreement between the administration and the faculty member. Please notify Janet Malphurs at 392-1251 of any necessary corrections.
The tenure and/or promotion packet must be completed (except for the administrators’ letters) and signed and dated by the nominee before the departmental review and secret ballot to indicate the packet is complete and ready for review. Nominees will need to use the attached guidelines to prepare their packet with the materials being organized in the same order as listed and with numbers and titles as listed.
Attachment #1 is to serve as the cover sheet for all packets.
All recommendations must be in the Academic Personnel Office, Room 29, Tigert Hall, by January 12, 2001. IFAS extension agents’ recommendations will be due January 19, 2001. Please schedule college/unit meetings to ensure the meeting of this deadline. College/department deadlines should be communicated to the faculty as soon as possible.
