Each year in May, the Department Head meets with each faculty member and discusses a variety of items including the Faculty Activity Report (FAR) and the Plan of Work (POW). For junior faculty, an important discussion is whether a dossier for reappointment or promotion should be assembled that summer. In preparation for that meeting, the timeline and details below are meant to provide clarity about the process. (Post-Tenure Review is a completely separate process and has its own rules and procedures, http://policies.ncsu.edu/regulation/reg-05-20-04.)
Details of Online Folders
The following online folders will hold the CV, SME, FAR, and POW of faculty who may be eligible for reappointment or promotion. Previous year versions of these documents will remain in the folder, labeled by the year. In the faculty meeting in April, the discussions will begin with the faculty appropriate to view Folder 1. Then, the faculty appropriate to view Folder 2 will remain and discuss faculty in Folder 2. We continue similarly for Folders 3 and 4.
Folder 1: Teaching Assistant Professors and Research Assistant Professors eligible for reappointment at the assistant level (during last year of contract) or promotion to Associate Professor. Accessible to all Associate and Full Professors. (Non-tenure track faculty may give input but not vote on decisions.)
Folder 2: Tenure-Track Assistant Professors eligible for reappointment or promotion to Associate. Accessible to all DVF faculty.
Folder 3: Teaching Associate Professors and Research Associate Professors eligible for reappointment at the associate level (during last year of contract) or promotion to Full Professor. Accessible to all Full Professors. (Non-tenure track faculty may give input but not vote on decisions.)
Folder 4: Tenure-Track Associate Professors eligible for promotion to Full. Accessible to all DVF Full Professors.
