Revisions to HR-23 and the Administrative Guidelines
The revisions to the 2012-13 Administrative Guidelines for HR-23: Promotion and Tenure Procedures and Regulations are noted below:
Rainbow Dividers - With various colleges using different methods or processes for committee members and administrators to view dossiers, coupled with the desire to allow flexibility to gain efficiencies in the process, colleges should discontinue the use of colored, card stock dividers (traditionally known as “rainbow dividers” that are ordered each year through Multimedia and Printing Services). Colleges will now be able to easily print the dividers from GURU; once printed, your college can merely use regular white paper or copy the dividers on regular stock colored paper as your college deems appropriate to best meet the college’s needs. And, whatever method your college adopts poses no difficulties for dossiers presented to the University level of review. For colleges using Activity Insights for dossier generation, these dividers can be easily integrated into the electronic dossier report format, thus eliminating completely the need to print them from GURU (just work with your Activity Insights liaison to request such report modification).
Appendix A (Pages 28) - Clarifications of the administration of the SRTE.
Appendix B (Pages 32-33) - The “Timetable for 2012-13 Promotion and Tenure Reviews” has been updated.
Appendix D (page 37) - Flow chart updated to reflect the reporting line for Great Valley.
