This rule describes standards and procedures of the Department of Business Management for post tenure review of faculty.  It supplements NC State University’s Academic Tenure Policy (POL 05.20.01) and regulation on Post Tenure Review of Faculty (REG 05.20.04).  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

2.1.1 The PTRC shall consist of four tenured faculty members appointed by the Department Head, two of which are Full Professors and two of which are tenured, Associate Professors.  PTRC members will serve staggered four-year terms with one new member being appointed by the Head each year.  All tenured faculty in the department are eligible to serve on the PTRC, unless they will be reviewed during the term. In the event that four tenured faculty members of the Business Management Department cannot be found that meet the aforementioned criteria, the Head is empowered to appoint a faculty member from another Department within the College of Management.

2.1.2 The PTRC Chair is elected by the members of the PTRC Committee from among the Full Professor members, who are also members of the Business Management Department.  The PTRC Chair should familiarize himself or herself with the applicable policies and regulations.

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 university NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty, from each faculty member to be reviewed.

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.
