Promotion and Tenure Solicitations

The Faculty Collective Agreement requires that in evaluating a faculty member's performance for promotion and tenure purposes, a public solicitation for letters must occur.

Unless you specifically indicate in your submission that your identity can be known to the candidate, your identity will be kept confidential from the candidate. The contents of your letter will be revealed to the candidate by including in his or her Promotion and Tenure File, a copy of your letter with all identification removed. If you wish your identity to remain confidential, please phrase your letter such that your identity is not revealed by content. You should be aware that your letter in its entirety will be seen by the Promotion and Tenure Committee reviewing this case.
