PROMOTION AND TENURE COMMITTEE
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.
The Promotion and Tenure Committee was initially created by faculty approval of the 2005 Proposal for Governance Reform regarding the Promotion and Tenure Committee.
