1. INTRODUCTION

This regulation establishes college information for the comprehensive, periodic, cumulative

review of the performance of all the college’s tenured faculty. This regulation is consistent with the requirements of NCSU REG05.20.04 – 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

The College of Design recognizes that different fields of study have different expectations and that not all career paths are the same. An effective and equitable system of PTR must be flexible enough to acknowledge and support a variety of expectations and activities.

2.1 Standards for Associate Professors

Associate Professors are to be evaluated to determine if they meet the expectations set forth in their Statement of Faculty Responsibility at a level consistent with performance standards for their rank set forth in the Academic Tenure Policy and college and departmental reappointment, promotion and tenure rules.

2.2 Standards for Professors

Professors are to be evaluated to determine if they meet the expectations set forth in their Statement of Faculty Responsibility at a level consistent with performance standards for their rank set forth in the Academic Tenure Policy and college and departmental reappointment, promotion and tenure rules.

3. STANDARDS FOR EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

Because the College of Design recognizes exemplary performance beyond the “meets expectations” level, a faculty member’s performance that surpasses overall performance expectations as identified by academic departmental rules for faculty at the same rank may be designated “exceeds expectations.” Exemplary achievements may include outstanding work or recognition in the areas of research, creative artistry, technological innovation, teaching, extension and engagement and service. For example, these achievements may include teaching awards, the receipt of awards or fellowships from national or international professional societies and granting agencies, an extraordinary quantity of peer reviewed scholarly or creative work published in national or international venues, or noteworthy invention disclosures, patents, service to the department, college, university, or profession.

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 RPT Committee will also serve as the College PTR Committee. Appointment procedures and compositions are outlined in NCSU RUL05.67.106 – College of Design Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure Criteria and Procedures.

Departmental results are due to the Dean by April 1.  In accordance with NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty, all materials considered by Department PTR Committees will be forwarded to the College PTR Committee for any cases requiring their action.  The College PTR Committee will convene and produce a written report assessing whether candidates do not meet expectations, meet expectations, or exceed expectations in accordance with NCSU REG05.20.04 – Post Tenure Review of Faculty. CPTRC written reports for each candidate will be submitted to the Dean no later than May 1.

5. ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES FOR THE COLLEGE OF DESIGN

NC State meets the UNC system requirement to provide ongoing support and training for post-tenure review with ongoing support available through the Office of Faculty Affairs and Annual and Post-Tenure Review webpages.
