Faculty Post-Tenure Review

Tenured faculty at the University of Florida are expected to demonstrate sustained distinction through professional achievements in at least two mission areas, typically (1) research and (2) teaching; however, patient care, service, or extension are appropriate areas of distinction as reflected in the annual assignment. During the post-tenure review process the University will review the cumulative level of accomplishment and productivity over the previous five years relative to the faculty member’s assigned duties in research, teaching, and service, including extension, clinical, and administrative assignments. In addition, the University will review the faculty member’s professional conduct and performance of their academic responsibilities.
