FACULTY TENURE AND PROMOTION COMMITTEE
YEAR-END REPORT ON ACTIVITIES
The only business conducted by the FTPC this year was that relating to deliberations on candidates applying for tenure and/or promotion, of which there were nine.
After an organizational meeting in September, the FTPC held an open meeting with the faculty on 3 October 2000 to discuss policies and procedures relating to the T&P process.
In late 2000 and early 2001 the Chair coordinated the safekeeping and distribution of materials to FTPC members and was liasion with the Administration, the department heads, and the candidates on all matters relating to the process.
In February, the FTPC read candidates' dossiers and interviewed candidates. A vote was then held by secret ballot, and there being no negative recommendations and thus no requests for second reviews, the Chair forwarded the recommendations to the Administration, who approved these recommendations.
All business was finalized by spring break.
Respectfully submitted,James M. Hutchisson
Professor of English
Chair of FTPC, 2000-20001
