Evaluations - Tenure Track

Normally, a probationary faculty member is given a two-year initial appointment. Probationary faculty are subject to reviews before they are re-appointed to third, fourth, fifth or sixth probationary years or granted tenure. Appointment to probationary status implies that a faculty member will eventually be granted tenure if his or her performance meets the standards in Section II UPS 210.000PDF File Opens in new window  (current version approved 3/26/18) and of his or her approved Departmental Personnel Standards. Tenure-track faculty are considered probationary faculty until they are awarded tenure or terminated.

The RTP timeline is established by the Office of the Provost, on behalf of the President.
