Committee Composition

Overall, the composition of the Promotions Committee should strive to reflect diverse perspectives and experiences of faculty.

* The Committee should represent a balance between Career & Technical Education and transfer areas, with no more than one faculty member from any one discipline.

* Committee members should not be eligible to stand for promotions during their term.

** The administrative appointment on Promotions Committee will either be an Instructional Dean or if that is not possible, another administrator who has three years minimum instructional experience.

The Promotions Committee and the President will review deliberations of the Committee before recommendations are finalized and forwarded to the Board.

The President will recommend promotions to the Board and may seek assistance in making such presentations from the Vice President for Instruction or from faculty members as seems appropriate.

Chair Election: Chair to be elected annually by the committee from among the faculty members on the committee.
