This document outlines the procedures for reviewing and recommending faculty tenure at the El Paso County Community College District, in Texas. First, definitions are provided of the participants in the review process, including the tenure candidate, participating administrators, and committees. Next, eligibility for tenure is reviewed, indicating that candidates must have completed at least 5 years of eligible (i.e., 60% instructional duties) service. Advisory duties and responsibilities of the District tenure committee are then identified, focusing on representation from different departments and terms of appointment, and the following tenure evaluation criteria are presented: (1) evidence of superior job performance; (2) professional responsibilities; (3) evidence of professional growth; and (4) professional service to the community and state. The tenure review process is then examined, including the orientation of new probationary faculty, annual evaluations, progress reports, workshops for the tenure committee and procedures for recommending tenure to the President, and written appeals in the event of denial of tenure. Finally, procedures are reviewed for handling tenure packet materials from candidates recommended for tenure and/or a sixth probationary year and issues of confidentiality are discussed. (TGI)
