Fourth Year Pre-Tenure Review (UAFT only)

Guidelines for 4th-Year Comprehensive Progression Toward Tenure Review

NOTE: All UAFT faculty undergoing 4th-year progression toward tenure (pre-tenure) review in AY17-18 must submit their review binder as scheduled, and shall also submit their Annual Activity Report for AY16-17 via Faculty 180 by September 15, 2017.

All faculty represented by the University of Alaska Federation of Teachers (UAFT) bargaining unit and in a tenure-track position will undergo a comprehensive progression toward tenure review in their fourth appointment year.  The criteria by which you will be judged are parallel to those in place for faculty undergoing promotion and tenure review at UAF since 1989.  The criteria are located in the "Blue Book," UAF's Policies and Regulations for the Appointment and Evaluation of Faculty.  Be sure to read Article 6 of the UAFT collective bargaining agreement that outlines the comprehensive progression toward tenure review.

The deadline for submitting materials for the 4th-Year Comprehensive Pre-Tenure Review to your campus dean/director or executive dean is September 15, 2017.

The materials on this site are designed to assist you in preparing your 4th-Year Comprehensive Pre-Tenure Review file.  Your file should include material that covers the period since your initial hire into your current tenure-track position.  You are especially encouraged to address in your self-evaluation any aspects of your position or your record which you feel deserve special consideration, or which you feel might not be readily apparent to those evaluating your file.

If you have questions or need further clarification, please consult your campus dean/director or executive dean, or contact Jennifer Hoppough at (907)474-7096 or
