The Faculty Personnel Committee offers an amended motion to revise FASH 5.28, currently under consideration by the Senate.  The amended motion would strike all provisions for reconsideration, so that FASH 5.28 be revised as follows: 

CURRENT LANGUAGE

APPEAL PROCEDURES: PROMOTION SUBCOMMITTEE DECISIONS

A faculty member may request an administrative review of the decision of a departmental promotion subcommittee not to recommend promotion provided that the faculty member meets the minimum degree and experience requirements for consideration for promotion to the rank sought.

The administrative review shall be conducted by the next highest administrative level not involved in the contested decision. During the course of this review, it shall be the responsibility of the faculty member to show cause why the issue of his/her promotion should receive further consideration. After reviewing the statement of the faculty member, the qualifications of the faculty member, and the facts relating to the promotion subcommittee's review, the reviewer may direct the promotion subcommittee to reconvene and to reconsider the issue on its merits. After reconsideration the promotion subcommittee shall submit a report to the reviewer including a recommendation and the justification for the recommendation. After considering the subcommittee's report, the reviewer shall make a report and a recommendation to the next highest administrative level not involved in the appeal. (US 10/99)

APPEAL PROCEDURES: ADMINISTRATIVE DECISIONS

A faculty member may request the Chancellor to review administrative decisions not to recommend promotion provided that the following conditions have been met:

1.   The faculty member meets the minimum degree and experience requirements for promotion to the rank sought.

2.   The faculty member has been recommended for promotion by the appropriate promotion subcommittee in each of two separate years, and a negative recommendation has been recorded each year by any subsequent level of administrative review. (US 12/91)

 

PROPOSED LANGUAGE (striking all language related to reconsideration)

 

APPEALS OF DENIALS OF PROMOTION

Upon receiving written notice of a decision to deny promotion, a faculty member who meets the minimum degree and experience requirements for promotion to the rank sought may within 10 days formally appeal the negative decision to the next highest administrative level not involved in the contested decision. The faculty member’s appeal shall be heard within 20 days of its initiation. It is the faculty member’s obligation to provide good reasons why the negative decision should be overturned.  After reviewing the relevant facts, the reviewer shall, within 5 days of hearing the appeal, decide the appeal and shall promptly inform the faculty member in writing of his or her decision and the reasons for it.  If the reviewer reaffirms the negative decision, the faculty member may not appeal it.  If the reviewer reverses the negative decision, the application for promotion shall be forwarded to the next higher administrative level, if any, though the faculty member may not appeal any subsequent negative decision of the current application for promotion.
