The Tenure and Promotion Committee (T&P) provides a faculty assessment of candidates who come up for tenure and promotion, as well as candidates tenured at other institutions who are applying for a tenured position at Tufts. The T&P Committee also reviews and updates Statement #11—the procedures for the tenure and promotion process.
This committee consists of eight tenured members of this faculty elected by the entire voting faculty, and the provost, without vote. At all times, the committee membership shall include at least two members of the Faculty of the School of Engineering and four members from the Faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences. At least one member shall represent each of the following areas in School of Arts and Sciences: the humanities and arts; the social sciences; the natural sciences and mathematics. No more than one member of a single department may be a member of this committee at any one time. Eligible members are elected to three-year staggered terms, which begin May 1 in the academic year following the election. The provost and senior vice president serves as a non-voting member.
Committee members have an intense workload in both the fall and the spring semesters. In addition, there may be occasion to work on off-cycle cases during the summer months. Committee members receive two course releases during the academic year (one per semester) in which they serve. This committee is not appropriate for junior faculty, as membership is limited to tenured faculty.
