Criteria for awarding Tenure.

The technical criteria for awarding of tenure are the same as those for promotion to Associate Professor. The awarding of tenure must be considered more than a reward for excellent performance, however. The goals and mission of the department, and the degree with which the candidate contributes to these, are an important consideration. The awarding of tenure is the means by which the department controls its long term growth and direction.
