Institutional Effectiveness through a Rigorous Tenure Review Process.
Silva, Michael C.; Rorie, Charles
This paper describes the tenure review process at the El Paso Community College District, in Texas, providing District policies, instructions for candidates, and sample forms. The first section indicates that the 5-year, criteria-based process provides training for all participants and utilizes candidate self-evaluations, as well as reviews and recommendations from divisional peers, a supervisor, an executive dean, a district faculty committee, and the college president. The next section reviews criteria for awarding tenure and the relative importance of each, indicating that job performance is worth 50%, participation in professional responsibilities 25%, professional growth 15%, and service to the community and state 10%. Following a list of steps in the tenure process, board policies related to tenure review and recommendations and instructions for tenure candidates are provided. The instructions list supporting materials that candidates might use to show evidence of superior job performance for teachers, counselors, and librarians; of participation in professional responsibilities, such as membership on college and/or division committees; of professional growth, including degrees earned or conferences attended; and of professional service to the community. Finally, sample application forms for tenure candidates are provided. (KP)
