Committee on Academic Personnel (CAP): Evaluation, Tenure, and Promotion Guidelines.
San Diego Community Coll. District, CA.
Since July 1, 1985, all new faculty appointed to tenure-track positions in the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) have been subject to a promotion process which has been modified twice in the past 2 years. In addition, a new evaluation procedure and instrument have been adopted, and a competitive "Merit Step Advancement" feature has been added to the district-faculty collective bargaining agreement. This faculty handbook was developed by the Committee on Academic Personnel (CAP) in order to familiarize faculty and administrators with current procedures regarding the awarding of tenure, evaluation, and promotion, An introductory letter to all faculty describes the background to the handbook, stresses that the purpose of evaluation is to foster professional growth, and offers suggestions on the records that should be kept by faculty seeking promotion. The three-part handbook presents the revised guidelines by contrasting them with the wording of the superseded version. Section one describes the standards for regular promotion, discussing process and policies. Section two reviews the standards, application procedure, and review process for merit step advancement. The final section describes tenure and promotion procedures, reviewing probation and tenure, post-tenure, non-promotional evaluation, general promotion procedures from assistant to associate to full professor, promotion timelines, CAP promotional decisions, and notification of promotion.
