The Human Resources department manages the faculty tenure process and provides related support, such as:

  • Overview of the tenure process at New Employee Orientation
  • Technical assistance to candidates and committees regarding tenure portfolios and presentations to the Board of Trustees.
  • Providing resources to the Tenure Review Oversight Committee.

The Human Resources Department creates and maintains the college's Tenure Workbook. Developed in collaboration with faculty members and administrators, the workbook outlines the tenure process and provides a framework guiding the activities of tenure review committee and probationers. Contact the Human Resources Department or the Tenure Review Oversight Committee with questions about the process.
