2.8 Post-tenure Faculty Development Program

The Post-tenure Faculty Development Program is proposed within the context of the tenure system and in no way jeopardizes a faculty member’s tenured status.  It provides a systematic opportunity for tenured faculty to reflect on teaching, scholarship and creative work and service activities.  The program assists the faculty in planning a course of professional development for the future in an atmosphere of collegial and institutional support.  With the advice and assistance of a post-tenure faculty development program coordinator for each campus, faculty design their professional development programs to fit their particular fields, activities, interests, and life and career culture that fosters it.

Procedures for the implementation of the Post-tenure Faculty Development Program are found in Section 4.2.
