7.4.3 Faculty and Department Chair Recommendations
Schools and colleges must provide a procedure whereby the tenured faculty of the unit can indicate whether or not they support the recommendation of the evaluation committee. Such procedures should appear in the unit guidelines for promotion and tenure.
After reading the report of the evaluation committee, the tenured faculty of the school, college or department, as specified in unit guidelines, shall vote on whether or not to support the recommendation of the evaluation committee. This recommendation is reported to the faculty member, the department chair, and the dean.
When called for by unit guidelines, the department chair also submits a recommendation to the dean and the faculty member.
