Promotion & Tenure Committee

The Department of Agronomy and Horticulture Promotion and Tenure Committee conducts annual evaluations of pre-tenured and/or pre fully-promoted faculty. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess whether the candidates meet the high standards of faculty performance in all aspects of their position. In this way, a faculty of the highest quality and distinction will be maintained.

The P&T Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Agronomy and Horticulture Department Head, who determines whether or not the candidate should be recommended to the IANR Dean's council for tenure and/or promotion.

The P&T committee will be comprised of seven fully promoted tenured faculty, four tenured faculty at the Associate Professor level, and one Professor of Practice at the Associate or Full level in the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture representing the Research and Extension Centers (at least two members), the Beadle Center (at least one member), and all the diverse programs within the department. Term of service is three years. The P&T Committee members are elected by all faculty within the department. The chair of the P&T Committee serves a two-year term and is elected by the committee.
