7.3.4 Evaluation of Prior Service
Approved by Academic Council, Faculty, Administration
Each faculty member's initial letter of appointment must identify full-time prior professional service and/or teaching experience at an accredited institution of higher learning, if any, which have been approved as counting toward meeting minimum time requirements for promotion and/or the probationary period for tenure.
After consultation with the candidate, the dean should recommend how much service and/or experience to count to the Provost, who will make the final determination.
The letter of appointment will also indicate the year in which the first peer evaluation will occur.
