Department/Unit Standards:  Department guidelines, policies, and procedures that contain the department’s faculty unit employee evaluation criteria and procedures. Department Unit/Standards serve as a guide to candidates and evaluators during the RTP cycle.

Department/Unit Standards are reviewed periodically by the department/unit. All changes must be approved by the Provost, before being utilized for RTP purposes. The Department Standards Circulation Form must be utilized to track Department/Unit Standards revisions.  Once approved, Department/Unit Standard documents are posted below.
