1.  INTRODUCTION

This rule describes the School of Architecture’s standards and procedures for post tenure review of faculty.  It is supplemental to and consistent with the NC State University Academic Tenure Policy and Regulation on Post Tenure Review of Faculty.  To the extent of any inconsistency, the Academic Tenure Policy and Post Tenure Review Regulation control. The Department Head is responsible for assuring that the procedures as set forth in NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty and this Rule are followed.

2.  POST TENURE REVIEW COMMITTEE (PTRC)

2.1 Selection

The Post Tenure Review Committee (PTRC) is comprised of three (3) tenured faculty at, or above, the rank of those being reviewed, who are elected by the school departmental voting faculty for a one-year term.  If one member of the faculty to be reviewed is a full professor, all members of the Post Tenure Review Committee must be full professors.  The committee chair is selected by the committee at their first meeting.

2.2 Meeting Schedule

The PTRC Chair will meet with the Department Head early in the fall semester to learn who will be reviewed during that year and what the schedule will be.  The main review will be held in the spring after the Department has assembled the required materials, as set forth in section 5.2 of NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty from each faculty member to be reviewed.

2.3  The PTRC Chair will schedule all meetings, coordinate with the Department Head, and prepare and transmit reports from the committee to the Head and to the faculty members reviewed.

2.4  Report to Department Head/Chair

The post tenure review committee will provide a comprehensive, cumulative, written assessment to determine whether the tenured faculty member meets or does not meet the performance standards, as defined in Departmental Rules, for the realms of responsibility described in the Statement of Mutual Expectations of the faculty member undergoing post tenure review.  The determination of meets or does not meet expectations shall be based on a simple majority vote of the peer review committee.  A tie vote shall be understood to meet expectations.

3.   DEPARTMENTAL POST TENURE REVIEW SCHEDULE

Faculty members who will undergo PTR in any given year, will be advised by the School Director of the upcoming review, as early as possible, but in no event later than September 1 of the academic year in which the review is to take place.

4.  DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED TO THE PTRC

The documentation provided to the PTRC is set forth in section 5.2 of NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty and includes: a current CV; Statement of Mutual Expectations; Each annual report since the last PTR; and peer teaching evaluations since the last review.

Additional materials required by the School of Architecture include: a written self-assessment, indicating his or her accomplishments since the last PTR, (and, in the case of the initial review, his or her accomplishments during the period since tenure or promotion to Associate or Full Professor rank); a statement of goals for the next five years; and a statement on ways in which the School could assist in his or her professional development.
