1.  INTRODUCTION

This rule describes standards and procedures of the Department of Physical Education 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.  POST TENURE REVIEW COMMITTEE (PTRC)

2.1 Selection

The PTRC shall consist of all tenured faculty members in the Department of Physical Education.  All tenured faculty in the department are eligible to serve on the PTRC, unless they will be reviewed during the term.

In any given academic year, the longest tenured member of the PTRC will chair the committee.  The PTRC Chair should familiarize himself or herself with the applicable policies and regulations and this rule.

In case the PTRC Chair vacates, the longest tenured member remaining shall take that position.

In the event that the number of tenured faculty in the Department of Physical Education does not allow for a PTRC of at least three members, the Department Head, after consultation with the members of the PTRC, will ask tenured faculty from other appropriate departments to serve on the PTRC.

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.
