The Personnel Committee prepares recommendations to the Office of the Provost concerning promotion and tenure. In doing this, it seeks to fairly evaluate a faculty member’s teaching competence, scholarly and professional attainment, responsible participation in institutional activities, and alignment with institutional mission.
The committee is comprised of nine tenured members of the faculty who are neither Deans nor Directors (elected for three-year terms), no one of whom is scheduled for a review for promotion during the academic years concerned. A minimum of four and a maximum of five will have completed at least ten years of service at North Park University. Representation is distributed among, and is as representative as possible of, University divisions and schools.
