Each academic unit of the University authorized to initiate and recommend promotion and tenure shall formulate a systematized and reasonably detailed statement of the internal procedures to be employed by that academic unit in determining its recommendations. Where substitutive norms under Section 302.04(2) are recognized by the academic unit, the statement shall delineate the quality and nature of the activities that may be substituted for scholarship.
Such statement shall be submitted to the Office of the Provost for its information; and the unit shall promulgate the statement to all of its Regular Faculty.
Revisions of such statements may be effected and promulgated from time to time by an equivalent procedure, as the originating unit may deem appropriate.
Members of the University Committee have articulated dilemmas faced by their colleges when hiring faculty in highly competitive areas during late spring and early summer. In some cases, these individuals did not become available until late spring when the regular search process has ended. Moreover, when hiring these individuals for endowed chairs or as department chairs, conferral of tenure is often a consideration. In the experience of the college representatives, serious conflicts can surface as follows:
In view of these issues, the University Committee determined to recommend a process to the Provost. After considerable discussion, Committee members noted that, in addition to an established research record, Marquette University requires better teaching than might otherwise be required at institutions conferring tenure. The University Committee therefore outlined the following process for hiring candidates at advanced rank with tenure:
It was the consensus of the University Committee on Faculty Promotions and Tenure that the candidate’s burden to supply these materials can be alleviated if the advertisement clearly requires that candidates supply evidence of these criteria at some point in the hiring process. It was a further consensus that the University Committee need not be involved in this process. However, it is critical that the local or departmental committee be involved in the final stages, as noted.
