What is New in the 2012 Procedures

•Section II.C.3 Voting Procedures

–If tenured faculty are absent from a meeting in which tenure and promotion votes are held, they can vote on a password-protected, secure web site instead of presenting a written, sealed ballot ahead of time.

–E-mail, proxy and phone votes are still not permitted because they are not secret ballots.

Important Reminder for Department Heads

•Section II.D Explaining the process to the candidate

Each unit head must meet with new faculty in their first probationary year and

•Provide them with the tenure regulations, Procedures, and the unit 7.12 statement.

Mandatory Text in Letter to All Reviewers

“Your letter will become part of Dr. ----------’s personnel file. The Minnesota Government Data Practices act allows an employee complete access to the contents of that file upon request. According to our procedural rules, your letter will be available to Dr. ------------.”

DO NOT augment, diminish, comment, discuss these three sentences - just leave them be.

Mandatory Text in Letter to All Reviewers if Probationary Period was Extended

Also, the University of Minnesota’s Procedures for Reviewing Candidates for Tenure and/or Promotion require me to inform you that Dr. ------------’s probationary period was extended one year according to factors permissible in our tenure policy. We ask you to regard Dr. ----------’s total probationary period as six years in length, even though his appointment may have been for seven years. Please evaluate his productivity accordingly.

Format of P&T Files Period was Extended

The P&T file should be in one pdf formatted as described in Dossier Format 2012-13. This file should contain only the selected publications. This file will be sent to the Provost along with the Dean’s recommendation.

A separate supplementary file with pdf versions of every publication of the candidate should be prepared. These files will be available for review at the college level, but they will not be forwarded to the Provost unless requested.
