4.10 / Interpretative Statements on Tenure

Acting under the provisions of the Kansas Board of Regents Tenure Policy and Promotions in Academic Rank Policy, the University may award tenure or promotion to faculty members based on demonstrated excellence in scholarship, teaching/librarianship, and community and professional service. The granting of tenure or promotion is at the initiative of the University and is based on sustained achievements demonstrating that the faculty member meets the qualitative and quantitative standards of the appropriate discipline and the requirements of the University. Tenure or promotion is not acquired simply by meeting assigned duties with a record free of deficiencies.

Tenure or promotion is conferred on the basis of (a) the qualifications of the individual, (b) the objectives and needs of the University's academic programs, and (c) the resources of the University as these are determined by faculty committees and administrator's reviews at departmental, college/school/University Libraries, and University levels.
