The Graduate School is an administrative unit. Non-tenure track faculty in the unit have assignments in administration. Criteria for non-tenure-track faculty promotions focus on degree, time-in-service, and performance. Overall performance is reviewed in the annual evaluation process, which determines recommendations for promotion as well as salary actions and retention. Details and procedures are provided in the document "FACULTY PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS, MERIT PAY INCREASE, AND PROMOTION CRITERIA & PROCESS FOR NON-TENURE-TRACK-FACULTY."
