The University of Arizona Handbook for Appointed Personnel (UHAP) sets forth the official policies regarding nontenure-eligible faculty at the University of Arizona.
UHAP 3.1.02, “Appointments of Nontenure-Eligible Faculty,” served as a reference for the Dean's Advisory Committee (DAC) in the development of the College of Humanities' Guidelines for Appointment, Evaluation, and Promotion for Nontenure-Eligible Faculty.
Departments and programs with nontenure-eligible faculty may also have unit-level guidelines. COH faculty should obtain unit-level information from their head or director.
At the end of each spring semester, the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs publishes guidelines and checklists to use in preparing promotion dossiers. It is the responsibility of departments and candidates to ensure that the dossier is prepared according to the guidelines.
The Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs also holds workshops each spring designed to provide information about the promotion process. The workshops explain the university’s review process and offer guidance on the promotion dossier. All candidates for promotion, chairs of committees, heads and directors are encouraged to attend the workshops in order to become familiar with dossier preparation requirements.
