In order to exceed expectations, the faculty member must significantly exceed the standards set forth in the Statement of Mutual Expectations.  Faculty performance that exceeds expectations, as determined by the department, should involve sustained excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.

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 Post Tenure Review Committee (PTR) will be an ad hoc committee. The current College Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure Committee (RPT) will be called upon for this role when needed. The chair of the College RPT committee will serve as the chair of the College PTR committee in this circumstance. Voting is limited to faculty holding the rank of Professor. No member of the College RPT committee will be allowed to simultaneously serve on a Departmental PTR committee.

5. ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES FOR THE COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE

5.2 Training. UNC General Administration has provided an online training resource for all faculty and administrators involved in Post-Tenure Review.
