Colorado Conference Issues Statement on Changing Tenure Criteria for Probationary Faculty
At its May 25, 2013 Executive Committee meeting the Colorado Conference approved a statement about changing tenure criteria for probationary faculty. In 2012-13 several annual evaluation or tenure and promotion cases at Colorado universities drew attention to the problem of changing codes and standards for tenure and promotion for tenure-track faculty in their probationary period. These cases are of interest to the Colorado Conference as the issue has broad applicability to the adoption and maintenance of best practices in the evaluation of probationary faculty leading to the grant of tenure and promotion in rank in colleges and universities statewide. The Conference’s statement can be found on the Documents page of this website and also here.
