This rule describes standards and procedures of the Department of Economics for post tenure review of faculty.  It supplements NC State University’s 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.


2.1. Selection

2.1.1 The PTRC shall consist of three tenured faculty members elected by the tenured faculty of the Department of Economics.  PTRC members will serve staggered terms with one new member being elected each year in which at least one faculty member is up for review.  All tenured faculty in the department are eligible to serve on the PTRC.

2.1.2 The chair of the PTRC Committee will be chosen by the Department Head.  The PTRC Chair should familiarize himself or herself with the applicable policies and regulations and this rule.

2.1.3 The Department Head shall initiate the election at the beginning of the academic year by soliciting nominations. A candidate will be considered elected if a majority of eligible voters has voted and the candidate receives a majority of the votes cast. In case of a vacancy or other conflict on the PTRC, such as a committee member being up for review, the Department Head shall appoint a replacement.

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 candidates being reviewed will assemble the required materials, as set forth in section 5.2 of university NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty, and submit them to the PTRC Chair and the Department Head.

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


The documentation provided to the PTRC is set forth in section 5.2 of university NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty.


The Department of Economics follows the PCOM Rule for Performance Standards.
