Two Student Representatives Needed for SAS Tenure & Promotion Committee
The Tenure & Promotion (T&P) Committee of the School of Administrative Studies (SAS) invites full time students in the Bachelor of Administrative Studies (BAS) or Bachelor of Disaster & Emergency Management (BDEM) ordinary or specialized honours degree programs to consider serving as student representative on the Committee for the academic year 2014-2015.
The SAS T&P committee, which is composed of six SAS faculty members, reviews and adjudicates files for granting of tenure and/or promotion to Associate Professor or Full Professor of candidate SAS faculty members. A candidate’s file consists of three sections – corresponding to the areas of teaching, research, and service. The members of the T&P committee assess the candidate in each of the three areas. Evaluation of the file is done in accordance with the SAS T&P standards – or criteria for promotion to full professor – as approved by the York Senate. You will receive a copy of the standards/criteria should you decide to apply to serve as one of two student representatives. Committee members are given the files for review at least two weeks in advance of an adjudication meeting. During the meeting, the files are discussed and a vote is taken. Student representatives’ votes are counted alongside those of faculty members participating in the adjudication process. T&P deliberations are completely confidential, and are not open to persons who are not on the committee.
Should you be interested to serve as a student member of the SAS T&P committee, please submit an application letter and your latest résumé to Professor Adriano Solis, Chair of the SAS T&P Committee, by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
