DRAFT

A general Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) about reviews of faculty members with assignments outside C&I

(prepared by C&I Chair and revised by GCE Dean; pending final approval)

The GCE Review guidelines for 4th year reviews and tenure specify the department-level, ad hoc committee composition as:
“1. At least two committee members should be from the department;
2. At least one member should be from the Graduate College of Education and outside the department;
3. No more than two from outside the College.”

In order to accommodate formal assignments for teaching, service, and/or research outside C&I (whether inside or outside the GCE), the College agrees on the following modifications:
“1. At least two committee members should be from the home department and at least one from the second department or program to which the faculty member is formally assigned;
2. At least one member should be from the Graduate College of Education and outside the department;
3. No more than two from outside the College than from inside.”

The C&I Constitution specifies that
“The Annual Faculty review subcommittee of the Departmental Personnel Committee should be composed of two tenured and one non-tenured faculty.”

The College agrees that:
“For Annual Faculty Reviews one member of the faculty member’s second department or program should be added to the subcommittee to review that faculty member in the areas in which that faculty member is assigned to serve the other unit.”

The College Dean and C&I Chair agree to monitor that merit and promotion decisions respect the responsibilities and expectations established in writing at the time of the assignment.

The College agrees that, provided these modified guidelines are respected, MOU’s can be written between the GCE Dean (after consulting with C&I Chair) and the head of the faculty member’s other unit(s) to specify particular details.

These modified conditions apply to the current assignments below until they are changed and to any future assignments until the Senate or Department decides on different policies for personnel reviews and for AFR/merit reviews, respectively.
Peter Kiang, 1/3 service to direct Asian-American Studies, 1/3 teaching in Asian-American Studies
Denise Patmon, teaching in Leadership in Education (one course/semester on semester by semester basis)
Steve Ribisi, teaching in Biology (one course per year)
Hannah Sevian, 1/3 teaching in Chemistry
Peter Taylor, 1/6 service to direct Science, Technology & Values, teaching in Public Policy (one course once every third or fourth semester).
