1. INTRODUCTION

This rule establishes college information for the comprehensive, periodic, cumulativereview of the performance of all the college’s tenured faculty. This rule is consistent with the requirements of NC State’s REG 05.20.04 Post Tenure Review of Faculty, UNC Policy 400.3.3 – Performance Review of Tenured Faculty and UNC Policy 400.3.3.1[G] – Guidelines on Performance Review of Tenured Faculty.

2.  STANDARDS FOR MEETING EXPECTATIONS

Tenured Professors and Associate Professors are expected to meet the standards of their ranks as specified in their departments rules RUL05.67.801for Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science and RUL05.67.800 for Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management.

3.  STANDARDS FOR EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

Faculty may be judged to have exceeded expectations if, during the review period under consideration, they have demonstrated exemplary and extraordinary performance in one or more of the realms of responsibility in their Statement of Mutual Expectation (SME), while meeting the expectations in the other realms. This could be assessed by an extraordinary amount and/or quality of activity in one or more of the realms of their SME. During the period under review, the faculty member may also have gained  recognition by being selected to a national academy, inducted to fellowship in a relevant society, or being recipient of a prestigious award for distinguished achievement, such as an Alumni Distinguished Professorship, or Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching, etc. Each faculty member will be assessed using guidelines provided in their departmental rules (RUL05.67.801 for Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science and RUL 05.67.800 for Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management).

4.  COLLEGE POST TENURE REVIEW COMMITTEE

Section 6.4 of REG 05.20.04 states that if the Dean’s initial determination of the faculty member’s performance differs from that of the Department Post Tenure Review Committee and/or the Department Head, then a College Post Tenure Review Committee is to be involved.

The College of Textiles will have a College Post Tenure Review Committee that will meet as deemed necessary, and specifically when there is a difference in the judgement of the Dean and the Departmental Head and/or Committee. The Committee will consist of two full professors from The Department of Textile and Apparel Technology and Management and two full professors from The Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science. The members will be elected from their departments and will serve staggered four year terms. The chair of the committee will alternate between departments (even years will be TECS and odd years TATM) with the longest serving representative from the department acting as chair for one year. In the event that a member leaves before the end of their allotted time an election will be held in their department to select a replacement. The committee will follow REG 05.20.04, and make an independent determination of whether the faculty member meets or does not meet expectations.

5.  ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES FOR THE COLLEGE OF TEXTILES

Department Heads will submit the completed faculty members’ post tenure reviews and details of reports and response to the Dean of the College of Textiles by March 1. In the event of a difference in the assessment by the Dean and the Department’s PTR Committee and/or Department Head, the post tenure review documentation will be forwarded to the College’s Post Tenure Review Committee before March 14, and the committee chair will schedule a meeting. The College PTR committee will prepare a written assessment which will be shared with: the faculty member under review, the Department PTR Committee, the Department Head, the Dean, and the Provost, no later than April 15.

The Dean will subsequently verify to the provost that the College is in compliance with this training requirement.
