Article 9.1.9 requires that members and alternates serving in their first year on a Tenure or Promotion Committee (or on UTPC) attend one of the workshops conducted jointly by the MRFA and Academic Affairs. Topics include responsibilities of committee members, tenure and promotion criteria, congruence of scholarship expectations with teaching loads at an undergraduate university, the need for flexibility in assessing a candidate’s performance, training on equity, diversity and inclusion, and the principles of due process and natural justice. Additional information will be provided this year regarding tenure and promotion process considerations relating to the pandemic.
