G-34-3.1.2 Description of rank and criteria for promotion

The College expects that all faculty members will satisfactorily perform their primary assignment and will maintain competency in their field (competency implies that one keeps current in one's field). The College also expects that all faculty members will act professionally and ethically. In addition to these assumptions, the College expects tenure- track and tenured faculty to satisfy other criteria specific to rank. Assistant Professor II, Associate Professor and Professor each carry expectations for performance in four criteria:

  • Primary Assignment
  • Professional Improvement
  • Service to the College
  • Community Service (not required at rank of Assistant Professor I)

Faculty members employed at Central Oregon Community College, regardless of the rank they initially occupy and whatever qualifications they possess on initial employment, are expected to mature as professionals and progress through the ranks to become outstanding faculty members.
