2.33 Considerations for Tenure

While the activities and accomplishments to be evaluated for tenure will vary between programmatic and disciplinary areas of the University, as well as among individual faculty, the base criteria for tenure are themselves reflective of the academic and intellectual values of the University, as commonly held:

a. The candidate would contribute significantly to the overall quality of the unit’s tenured faculty, as measured by the record of accomplishment at the time of consideration.

b. The candidate has made, and is likely to continue to make, high-quality and valuable contributions in teaching, scholarship, and service to the extent that tenure is in the best interest of Syracuse University.
