Each academic school must provide a midpoint progress evaluation of each non-tenured faculty member not more than four years after his/her initial appointment to a tenure-track position in order to provide the faculty member a systematic evaluation of his/her progress toward tenure. The advice of the tenured faculty in the unit must be sought in this evaluation. The midpoint evaluation will be reviewed at all levels required for a tenure decision, through the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The faculty member will receive a written evaluation from the chair, dean, and Provost. Neither the evaluation by the dean of the school or college nor the evaluation by the Provost can be used as the sole basis for issuing a terminal contract for the subsequent year.
