BFAX-M-4-1099 and BFAX-M-5-1099:
Tenure / Promotion Appeal Process

 

BFAX-M-4-1099

Motion:
Tenure / Promotion Appeal Process -
Discontinue President's Review

The BFA Executive Committee recommends that the following motion be forwarded to the BFA:

Although faculty are given only ten days to appeal an unfavorable tenure / promotion decision of the Chancellor, presidential review can take up to nine months, from May to February. This delay has unfortunate consequences. (1) It causes the appellant considerable anxiety, uncertainty, and inconvenience. (2) It causes the department delays in planing course offerings and, in the case of a failed appeal, costly delays in hiring new faculty.

Recommendation: The Boulder Faculty Assembly recommends that in tenure and promotion appeals the President's review be discontinued and, in the event of a negative decision from the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the Chancellor's review be the court of last appeal.
