3rd Year Review
The criteria for promotion or for granting of tenure or permanent status shall be related to the performance of the work, which the faculty member has been assigned to do, and the faculty member's duties and responsibilities as a member of the university community. These criteria recognize three broad categories of academic service:
- Instruction - including regular classroom teaching, direction of theses and dissertations, academic advisement, extension programs, and all preparation for this work including study to keep abreast of one's field
- research or other creative activity including scholarly, peer-reviewed publications
- professional and public service
Every year, the University of Florida prepares guidelines for the tenure and promotion process.
The college has a third-year review process with the purpose of providing structured and constructive information to assist candidates to meet college and university requirements for tenure and promotion. Each department or unit will construct a third year review process that best fits their procedures and practices and adopt them as part of their policies.
