Overview for PTR Reviewers 

UPS 210.020 PDF File Opens in new window defines the overall infrastructure for how Post Tenure Reviews (PTRs) for Tenured faculty are conducted including evaluation criteria and the steps in the review process workflow.

The purpose of periodic evaluation of tenured faculty shall be to encourage and maintain excellent performance in university assignments. It is intended to be an occasion for consultation with colleagues, whose aim should be the encouragement and maintenance of excellence; an acknowledgment of positive contributions made by tenured faculty; and, a time to reflect upon opportunities for growth and professional development.

  • PTRs are a separate evaluative process from either RTP or Lecturer evaluations, with their own responsibilties and deadlines
  • ALL PTR evaluations are conducted through the electronic evaluation system Interfolio , including the rebuttal period and the uploading of all required documentation that will be shared with the candidate according to the annually published timeline.
