WorkshopGood Practice in Tenure Evaluation
Target audience: Department chairs, center directors, senior faculty who participate in evaluating tenure-track faculty, and other academic administrators

LocationThe Lexmark Room, Room 209, Main Building
lunch provided
Presenters: Marcy Deaton, Office of Legal Counsel
                     G. T. Lineberry, and Richard Greissman, Office for Faculty Advancement

Based on the principles in United Educators’, Good Practice in Tenure Evaluation report, the program provides legal background regarding tenure. The bulk of the program is devoted to discussion of case studies within the context of UK’s polices and procedures pertaining to tenure review. Practical suggestions for the UK evaluation process are emphasized: (1) clarity in standards and procedures for tenure evaluation, (2) consistency in tenure decisions, (3) candor and rigor in the evaluation of tenure-track faculty, and (4) caring for unsuccessful candidates, either those individuals who receive terminal reappointments before the tenure review year or those persons who are denied tenure.
