RECRUIT AND RETAIN FACULTY
Initiative: Revise the reward system to promote and recognize outstanding faculty productivity. Faculty members who have outstanding publication, presentation, grant-getting records, and numbers of Ph.D. advisees should be appropriately rewarded as part of an overall accountability system for all colleges, departments, and faculty members.
- The new promotion and tenure document places an emphasis on the development of a national reputation for promotion to associate and the establishment of a national reputation for promotion to full. These achievements are directly linked to outstanding faculty productivity. In the past two years several faculty have been promoted "early" based on their outstanding productivity as described above.
