  • Decisions are based on peer review by elected committes of tenured faculty and appropriate Administrators.
  • All reviews are based only on materials in dossiers prepared by the candidate. Each reviewer sees identical material.
  • Reasons for decisions are given at each stage of review and candidates have the opportunity to write responses that are considered by the next level.
  • Confidentiality governs all RTP deliberations.
  • Fairness and equity require that all reviews are treated consistently in terms of procedures and timelines.
