Section 2 of the policy outlines the responsibilities and privileges of emeritus/emerita faculty status.
Emeritus/emerita faculty who have accepted duties and responsibilities assigned by an NC State administrative unit are to be provided office space and support consistent with those responsibilities and duties. For those who wish to remain active in scholarly or other creative work and/or service to the University without accepting assigned duties and responsibilities, efforts should be made to provide office space and all generally available services.
Can emeritus/emerita faculty vote on personnel decisions? No, emeritus/emerita faculty are not Departmental Voting Faculty and may not vote on any personnel decisions (appointment, reappointment, promotion and tenure, or post-tenure review).
Procedures for granting emeritus/emerita faculty status are available through the Office of the Provost.
The purpose of this policy is to provide an internal university process for the good faith resolution of employment-related faculty issues
Membersip criteria for the faculty grievance/review committee
Membersip criteria for the faculty grievance/review committee chair
Within the University, important faculty personnel decisions are based on evaluations of performance rendered by a candidate’s colleagues and supervisors, who are in the best position to make such judgments. The academic review process seeks to obtain the collective good faith professional academic judgment of the candidate’s colleagues and administrators as the basis for personnel decisions. This section includes criteria and procedures for non-reappointment review.
Any faculty member may seek redress through an employment-related grievance pursuant to Section 607 of The Code during the faculty member’s employment at NC State (“Grievance”). Types of grievances include general and post-tenure review. The purpose of grievances and Discharge/Imposition of Serious Sanctions is included in this section.
Procedures for grievances and non-reappointment reviews
The Chancellor shall issue the final decision for any Non-Reappointment Review or Grievance if the matter proceeds to a Non-Reappointment Review or Grievance Panel Hearing
The Faculty Grievance/Review Committee Chair, together with the Chair of the Faculty, shall make an annual report to the Faculty Senate and the Chancellor concerning the Non-Reappointment Review and Grievance process.
[A Post Tenure Review] extension of up to one (1) year may be granted with the approval of the Dean when compelling circumstances place an undue burden on the faculty member and/or department to complete the review during the fifth year.
The review process for a comprehensive five-year post-tenure review is outlined in full in Section 5 of the regulation.
Post-tenure review is an opportunity to support and encourage excellence among tenured faculty, as well as to provide individualized attention to underperformance. From the faculty member undergoing review to the college dean, each person involved must complete role-specific requirements for a successful post-tenure review process. The Provost Office has created role and responsibility pages related to help faculty who are undergoing post-tenure review or serving on post-tenure review committees
