Post-Tenure Review (UNAC)


Guidelines for Post-Tenure Review for United Academics Faculty

NOTE: This page will be updated to reflect the procedures in the new UNAC Collective Bargaining Agreement following the conclusion of the current review period on May 1, 2014.  In the interim please refer to Article 9 of the UNAC CBA or contact Sally Skrip with questions.

Comprehensive Post-Tenure Review:
Tenured faculty members shall be evaluated comprehensively every six years by peer faculty members and administrators.  These evaluations shall be conducted in accordance with the procedures set forth in the University of Alaska Fairbanks Policies and Regulations for the Appointment and Evaluation of Faculty and Article 9.2.5 of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the University of Alaska and United Academics-AAUP/AFT.  Faculty undergoing 6th Year Post-Tenure Review ("Comprehensive" Post-Tenure Review) are required to submit a file for the period under review.

A satisfactory comprehensive post-tenure review will conclude when the overall recommendations by the unit-peer review committee and the dean and/or director are satisfactory.  An unsatisfactory comprehensive post-tenure review will proceed through to the university-wide committee and the provost when the recommendation(s) of the unit-peer review committee or the dean and/or director are unsatisfactory.  The review may proceed to the chancellor only at the request of the faculty member.

More information on the 6th Year Comprehensive Post-Tenure Review process can be found below via the link titled "Part I: Process and Procedures."
