Retention, Tenure, and Promotion Procedures for S98-8 and S15-8

In June 2015, the President signed University policies S15-6, S15-7, and S15-8, which revised the appointment, retention, tenure, and promotion policies for SJSU. The appointments policy, S15-6, went into effect fall 2015. The retention, tenure, and promotion (RTP) policy revisions will be effective fall 2016.

In preparation for that transition, the Professional Standards Committee, the Center for Faculty Development, and the Office of Faculty Affairs are planning workshops and training materials, and creating the new documents and forms needed for the new system of review.

This web site will serve as the primary portal for information on the new policies for faculty, staff, and administrators. It will be updated continuously as new documents or resources become available.

All RTP as of 2017-18 will be submitted through eFaculty.
