Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure

DAAP RPT Procedural Guidelines

The DAAP Faculty approved the final component of the RPT Procedural Guidelines at the Faculty Forum on April 28, 2005. The Procedural deadlines remain in effect until a new document is approved. However, a revised RPT Timeline was approved on March 26, 2015. This RPT Timeline replaces the one found within the 2005 DAAP RPT Procedural Guidelines. Note that these dates precede the dates within the AAUP CBA, as is allowed per the contract. These dates allow time for reviews at all necessary levels.
