Tenured Faculty Reviews (TFR)

Per Policy 6-321, each division, department, school, or college is required to review Tenured Faculty on a five-year schedule and to ratify standards and criteria for those reviews. These standards are approved by the unit faculty, the dean, the Senate Faculty Review Standards Committee (SFRSC), and the cognizant Senior Vice President. The SFRSC, with the support of the Senior Vice Presidents, have created a template. For assistance with drafting and the approval process, please contact Trina Rich in the Office for Faculty at or 801.581.6690.

In response to recent changes in state law, all TFR guidelines are considered "under revision" to allow for time to address the changes and for the shared governance approval process.
