Committees

The University of North Texas at Dallas (UNTD) values shared governance and seeks to involve faculty, staff, administrators, and students as part of this process, when appropriate and applicable. This list is intended to help assure effective rotation of representation for various groups, avoid vacancies and redundancies, and provide information to committee members and others about committee responsibilities and representation. For more information on University committees, please see Policy 4.001 Policy on Committees found on the UNTD Policy Manual webpage. Also on that webpage are templates and forms applicable to committees such as an agenda template, minutes template, request for new committee form, and the annual committee report template. All minutes should be emailed to minutes@untdallas.edu.

Committees

Tenure and Promotion (T&P) Committee

Purpose: 

Tenure and promotion procedures and criteria will be provided in writing to the faculty. Recommendations for tenure and promotion are based on the critical review of explicit evidence accumulated during the professional career to date, with particular emphasis on academic work accomplished during the appointment at the University of North Texas at Dallas. Tenure and promotion will normally be considered after the individual faculty member has demonstrated excellence for a sustained period of at least six years in a particular academic rank. Service for this length of time is normally required so that performance of academic duties provides evidence that the individual has attained regional, national, or international-level stature and sufficient justification for tenure and promotion. A sufficiently strong record is required also so that a prediction can be made that continuous, long-term, and high-quality achievement will continue.
