Balloting Procedures



A formal written ballot will be made available to each eligible faculty member. Signed ballots will be counted at the end of the deliberations. The ballot count will be reported by the P & T Committee as the number of affirmative votes of all persons voting. A 2/3 majority of cast votes is required to advance a candidate to the next level of consideration, unless the candidate is in the 6th year as assistant professor or the candidate specifically requests that the file be forwarded regardless of the vote. Off-campus members of the P&T Committee are urged to attend all critical meetings, but dossiers will be sent and faculty,unable to attend, may vote in absentia, in advance of the campus vote (votes may be cast by email).
