Post-Tenure Review



New Post Tenure Review Extension Policy

Policy ACAF 1.31, approved in 2012, allows all full-time tenured faculty to request the extension of a scheduled-post tenure review in the event anticipated or unanticipated life events may hinder faculty members from fully demonstrating their professional qualifications for post-tenure review.

Each tenured faculty member, regardless of rank and including those in departmental administrative positions, will be reviewed every six years unless, during the previous six year period, the faculty member is reviewed and advanced to or retained in a higher position (e.g., dean, a chaired professorship, promotion to a higher professorial rank).

Post-tenure review will be waived, however, for any faculty member who notifies the unit chair in writing of retirement within three years of the next scheduled review.

Complete information regarding post-tenure reviews of faculty can be found in the USC Columbia Faculty Manual on page 32.

Please contact the relevant department chair or dean for department- or college-specific post-tenure review guidelines.


Post-Tenure Review Calendar

The Post-Tenure Review Calendar is produced each year by the Provost Office. It identifies key dates and deadlines for all colleges/schools, departments and faculty members relating to the Post-Tenure review process.


Unit Criteria for Post-Tenure Review

Individual departmental or college/school Unit Criteria for Post-Tenure Review must be reviewed as well as the University policies identified in this site.


Tenure Clock and Post-Tenure Review Table

Most tenured faculty members will be reviewed every six years following receipt of tenure. This table tracks when a faculty member becomes eligible for Post-Tenure Review, based on date of tenure.**Please note that the calendar does not take into account possible changes to a faculty member’s status, such as an administrative appointment or chaired professorship review. Please see the Faculty Manual on page 32 for more information.
