External Letters

Outside evaluations for tenure and promotion cases should come from faculty in leading or peer programs, or justification for their selection is necessary. Only full professors should be used in tenure and promotion cases, although there may be rare and justified circumstances for asking an associate professor to serve.

We do not normally offer honoraria to external reviewers. However, if offering an honorarium is encouraged within a particular discipline, up to $200 may be offered with the permission of the Dean’s Office. If a department offers honoraria for this purpose, the Dean’s office will share those costs 50/50 with the department.
