Faculty Handbook: Policies Governing Faculty Service
3.1  Overview

Policies governing faculty service fall into several categories. Five of particular importance address such matters as evaluative criteria, standards, and procedures for appointment, promotion, tenure, annual review, post-tenure review, non-reappointment, and dismissal of faculty; faculty grievance procedures, or retrenchment. They are the following:

Appointments, Promotion, Tenure, Non-Reappointment, and Dismissal of Faculty, Board of Trustees Policy 405.1 (revised March 29, 2018)

Evaluative Criteria, Procedures and General Standards for Initial Appointment, Successive Appointments, Annual and Post-tenure Review, Promotion and Tenure, Academic Policy 1405.11 (revised April 13, 2019)

University and Distinguished Professors (revised April 10, 2019)

Faculty Grievance Procedure (revised August 20, 2001)

Retrenchment (Board Policy 405.5)

These five policies are available through the Provost's office web site: http://provost.uark.edu

Current personnel documents of the colleges and schools also address these matters:

Dean’s offices can provide copies or web addresses of personnel documents for faculty and non-classified staff appointed in other schools and colleges.
