Guidelines for the External Review Process

Department Heads are responsible for managing the external review process. They work with the faculty applicant and Department Personnel Committee to ensure an appropriate pool of potential reviewers and selection of the final individuals from whom reviews will be solicited.  Department Heads send out the faculty applicant’s materials and ensure that reviews are returned on time.  They place the reviews within the applicant’s dossier so that they are available for all subsequent levels of evaluation.
