Committee Composition

The committee will consist of ten full-time faculty members of the college as follows: (a) four tenured faculty holding the rank of full professor; (b) two tenured faculty holding the rank of associate professor; (c) one clinical full professor; and (d) three clinical associate/full professor. One-half of the members of the committee will be elected by faculty-at-large of the college and one-half of the committee members will be appointed by the Dean.

The committee will elect the chairperson of this committee for a two-year term from the tenured faculty holding the rank of full professor. The committee will elect the vice chairperson of this committee for a one-year term from any member of the committee. The terms of appointment for members of the Promotion and Tenure Committee will be for a period of three years with no member serving consecutive terms. The Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs will serve as a non-voting, ex officio member of the committee. The committee reports directly to the Dean.

Mid-career reviews, promotion and tenure applications along with sustained performance evaluations will be reviewed by all the members of the committee. Promotion and/or tenure votes will be performed by members of the committee that hold a rank superior to that of the candidate at the time of consideration. The committee will also review new appointments for associate and above and tenure upon hire.

Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of this committee to carry out the duties as outlined in the College’s promotion and tenure guidelines and the Regulations of the University of Florida as related to faculty appointment, awards, mid-career evaluations, promotion and tenure processes, and sustained performance evaluations.

The full committee is responsible for the annual review and recommendations for modifications of the College of Dentistry’s Promotion and Tenure Guidelines.  These recommendations will be submitted to the Faculty Assembly for discussion and approval.

Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities

The Promotion and Tenure Advisory Committee meets once a month on average for 1 hour over lunch. There are several processes in which the committee is involved. Although the committee meets all year round, in general, the Promotion and Tenure process begins in July and ends in December. Committee members must be available and be willing to attend all meetings related to P and T and the other processes in order to effectively serve as a member. The mid-career review process generally begins in August and ends in December. The salary pay plan increases are reviewed during January and February each year. Sustained performance evaluations are done from May through June.

In addition to monthly meetings, committee members review P and T packets outside of the meetings which can be extensive. Outside review of mid-career reviews and salary pay plan increases are similar to P and T in that they are also extensive. Sustained performance reviews require review of summary documents only.

Time commitment: Approximately 1 hour per month for meetings along with extensive review time required depending on the number of packets under consideration.
