Timeline of the RPT Process

January

Department chairs provide the College Office with the names of faculty members who are going up for reappointment and for promotion and/or tenure.

Spring semester

Individual departments have guidelines regarding the timeline for faculty to submit materials, names of external reviewers, etc.

February-April

CLAS holds workshops on personal statement and cv. (These are required for second-year and fifth-year faculty members.) See: Record of External Letters for CLAS RPT Review

April-May

External reviewers are sent the faculty member’s materials.

Early Fall

September/October

  • Departments review files and submit to Dean’s Office; DRC and Chair, independently and in this order, each write a recommendation, positive or negative. See http://clas-pages.uncc.edu/rpt/criteria/drc-guide/.
  • If the recommendation from the department chair is negative, the chair meets with the faculty member to provide a copy of the letters and to explain the right of rebuttal.

November/December

  • College Review Committee (CRC) reviews files and writes a recommendation, positive or negative. Dean reviews files and writes a recommendation, positive or negative.
