A new faculty member who was tenured elsewhere but expects to be tenured immediately at the University of Oregon must undergo the regular tenure review process. The case for tenure should be prepared identically to any other case but with special care in two areas:
• significant and substantial evidence of teaching excellence
• appropriate external peer review of the candidate.
For both teaching and external letters, the time needed to gather adequate data and thorough reviews must be taken into account as the unit works with the candidate and others to complete this process. In order to maximize the chance for a decision to be reached effective September of an academic year, the completed file must be submitted to the College of Arts and Sciences no later than March 15 of the previous academic year. Files submitted later than March 15 will be reviewed during the following fall term for a decision by December 15. In order to meet a December 15 decision goal, the completed file must be submitted to the College of Arts and Sciences by October 1.
