					   Guidelines for Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure and Post-Tenure
        Department of Performing and Fine Arts, Area of Music

     (Based on the “new” comprehensive faculty evaluation beta test)
In addition to the FSU Tenure Policies (Section V-A) and the UNC Code (Section 604
B), recommendations for reappointment, promotion, tenure and post-tenure review are
based on evidence of accomplishments and achievements by the faculty member.
Achieving minimum requirements does not guarantee favorable recommendations
regarding tenure as indicated by the following statement from the FSU policy on tenure
and promotion (V.A.):

The decision whether to reappoint a faculty member when a probationary (tenure-track) term
appointment expires may be based on any factor considered relevant to the total institutional
interests, but it must consider the faculty member's demonstrated professional competence,
potential for future contributions, and institutional needs and resources. These considerations may
form, in whole or in part, the basis of the ultimate decision, except that a decision not to reappoint
may not be based upon (1) the faculty member's exercise of rights guaranteed by either the First
Amendment to the United States Constitution or Article I of the North Carolina Constitution; (2)
discrimination based upon the faculty member's race, color, creed, gender, religion, age, national
origin, disability as defined by law, or veteran status or other forms of discrimination prohibited
under policies adopted by the Fayetteville State Board of Trustees, or (3) personal malice.


                                         Teaching
At any level of review, from Assistant Professor to Post-Tenure Review, a candidate’s
portfolio should show evidence of a commitment to and effectiveness in teaching.
Teaching is viewed within a wide institutional context and includes much more than
instruction in assigned courses. Teaching includes, but is not limited to, contributions in
curriculum design and development, advising students, participation in projects,
participating in workshops, innovative pedagogies and preparing instructional material,
etc.
                          Scholarship or Creative Achievement
A candidate’s scholarly or creative achievements should show evidence of being
significant, original and peer reviewed. The work should be publically disseminated -
usually through, but not limited to, publications, public performances,
compositions/arrangements, recordings, etc. High quality, originality, and significant
contributions are more important than volume.

                                            Service
Faculty service is of three types: service to the institution, service to the professional
community, and service to the community. An outstanding record of service involves
substantial achievements in more than one any one of these categories.

Service to the institution includes the Department, the College, and the University.
Service to the candidate’s department and to the institution is specifically required.



                                                  1
Service to the profession is regarded as a sign of scholarly accomplishment and
recognition and can be achieved by a variety of activities: including, but not limited to,
leadership in organizations and on committees relevant to the candidates specialty,
serving as a paid juror, a consultant relating to ones specialty, leadership in academic
organizations, etc.

Service to the community is regarded as an extension of one’s scholarship and teaching
and includes, but not limited to, consultant for organizations or agencies, serving on
community organizations and Boards, partnerships with the public school and art
agencies, serving on outreach programs that apply and disseminate knowledge and
creative works beyond the boundaries of the institution, etc. Community Service does not
supersede service to the institution.

                      Documents included in all personnel action requests:
In applying for any personnel action, a candidate must include the following documents,
since their last personnel action, in their portfolio:
    (1) FSU Policy and Procedure Documents for Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure
    (2) All Peer and Chair Assessment Matrixes
    (3) All Student Evaluations
    (4) Class Visitation Assessment(s) (when requested)
    (5) Evidence within the Categories of Teaching, Scholarship and Service
    (6) Honor and Awards


              Reappointment at the Rank of Assistant Professor
Candidate will present a portfolio (electronic or hard copy) that shows evidence of their
commitment in three categories: teaching, scholarship/creative activities, and service.
Annual Peer and Chair Assessment matrixes show evidence of “meeting expectations” in
all three categories. For any areas assessed as “needs improvement,” those areas should
be focused on the following academic year and reflect the assessment of “meets
expectations.” Repeated assessments of “not applicable” in a category will need
justification in the portfolio. Candidates must have an average Teaching Performance
rating of 3.75 or higher.

       -In addition to the above, at a minimum, the portfolio of a candidate applying for
       a second two-year reappointment as an Assistant Professor should reflect a strong
       commitment to being or becoming an effective teacher, a commitment to maintain
       a level of student performance consistent with the university and the area’s degree
       standards and initiatives, and shows evidence of collegiality.


       -At a minimum, in addition to the portfolio criteria for a second two-year
       reappointment, the portfolio of a candidate applying for a three-year probationary
       term as an Assistant Professor should also show evidence and promise of
       achieving a level of distinction in service and scholarship/creative activities that
       will eventually lead to promotion at the rank of Associate Professor (See


                                             2

should show a sustained commitment to teaching, scholarship and service.

The candidate’s portfolio should attest to demonstrable applications of scholarship or
creative activity; achievements that further the mission of the candidate’s department or
area with respect to teaching and research/creative activities. The portfolio should include
scholarly or creative peer reviewed contributions of significance and originality;
contributions whose quality is well documented and will have been judged by one’s
external peers. In addition, the candidate gives the following evidence in each category

the Faculty Handbook, the portfolio for tenure should reflect the same criteria for
“Conferral of Tenure” and below categories of teaching, scholarship/creative activities
and service below:

                  PROMOTION TO PROFESSOR AND TENURE

*If a candidate does not have tenure before applying for the rank of Professor, the
candidate must apply for promotion to Professor and tenure at the same time. Candidate
will present a portfolio (electronic or hard copy) that shows evidence of their
commitment to three categories: teaching, scholarship/creative activities, and service.

In addition to the FSU Guidelines for Tenure and Promotion and the Faculty Handbook,
the candidate will present a portfolio(s) that separates the two requests. Using the
guidelines for promotion to the rank of Professor, the candidate will submit a portfolio
(electronic or hard copy) that shows a commitment to teaching, scholarship/creative
activities, and service. Annual Peer and Chair Assessment matrixes, while at the rank of
Associate Professor, must show evidence of “meeting expectations” in all three
categories. Any areas assessed as “needs improvement,” those areas should be focused on
to improve the following academic year; the improvement reflected in the rating of
“meets expectations.” Repeated assessments of “not applicable” in a category need
justification in the portfolio for relevance.
