Faculty Career Development coordinates an annual Mid-Tenure Review panel spring semester. The panel discussion, Curious about the Mid-Tenure Review Process? begins with a presentation covering RIT’s policies on the tenure and promotion process. Following the presentation a panel consisting of a faculty representative from each of the nine Colleges responds to questions from the audience, and time is allowed for each College to have a break-out Q & A. Panelists are selected based on their previous work on tenure committees or they have recently been tenured at RIT. Faculty are reminded to always check with the department chair/dean's office on their specific College mid-tenure review processes.
