PROMOTION AND TENURE COMMITTEE

The Promotion and Tenure Committee consists of up to eight members elected by the faculty and appointed by the provost as outlined in the Faculty Senate Resolution on the Promotion and Tenure Committee adopted on December 6, 2006.   The committee members, in consultation with the department, the dean, the provost, and the president, review the candidate's promotion dossier and make recommendations to the president and the provost.

The Rice University Faculty Handbook provides a description of evaluation, promotion, and tenure processes along with references to the policy documents that govern those procedures.
