The Promotion, Tenure, Retention Appeal Committee (PTRAC) is governed

to deny promotion and/or tenure or the failure to renew an appointment.
It is a three member faculty committee with an alternate. 1 Member from
CAS, 1 member from professional schools and colleges, 1 at large member
and 1 alternate.
ELIGIBILITY: Members of this committee must be tenured
Officers of Instruction and must have served on the Faculty
Personnel Committee (FPC). Individuals who were involved in
a review of a case while a member of the FPC are not eligible to serve
on PTRAC if it is reviewing that case on appeal. No person may serve successive
three year terms. Prior members of the FPC are not eligible to serve while
they are deans or department heads. No two persons from the same department
may serve on PTRAC at the same time.
