II. TENURED PROFESSOR
Publications and teaching evaluations: These should
not be submitted to L&S, but should be available on Dean’s request.
For Associate and Full Professor normal merits, and merits involving no more than 1 year acceleration or deceleration, the L&S Personnel Office staff will review the case and then forward it to the appropriate Dean for consideration. The Dean has the final approval authority for the merit. The Vice Chancellor's approval must be obtained for off-scale salaries too high for the Dean to approve. Once all approvals have been obtained, the Department will be notified.
When a faculty member has been at the level of Associate Professor, Step III for at least five years, the department may recommend advancement to Associate Professor, Step IV or a change in series appointment to Lecturer SOE (Security of Employment) if the faculty member: 1) agrees in writing to teach a specified augmented annual teaching load; 2) demonstrates excellent teaching; and 3) meets the standard of meritorious performance of university and professional service. For more details, please see The CALL, Appendix 13.
