POLICY STATEMENT

Tenure is the practice of permanent or continuous appointments for faculty members in higher education, during which their service at a particular institution may be terminated only for (1) adequate cause demonstrated in a hearing before an appropriately selected faculty committee, (2) under the extraordinary circumstances of a bona fide financial exigency, involving retrenchment or discontinuance of an academic program or a department of instruction, or (3) discontinuance of a degree granting program or a department of instruction not mandated by financial exigency.

The policy on tenure is contained in the Academic Faculty and Administrative Professional Manual, sec. E.10. The Provost has issued guidelines on related issues and procedures, “Promotion and Tenure at Colorado State University,” addressing common questions that arise among faculty members, promotion and tenure committee members, and department chairs, concerning our promotion and tenure processes for regular faculty.
