University-wide guidelines for tenure, promotion, and  post-tenure review can be found in the Coastal Carolina Faculty Manual (2020-2021. The guidelines for performance expectations are as listed below.

  • Teaching effectiveness 
  • Advising 
  • Other assigned duties and responsibilities 
  • Scholarly or artistic pursuits in the discipline 
  • Relevant University, professional, and/or community service 

These criteria should also reflect any specific academic goals and administrative structure that may exist in that College/Library. Criteria and procedures must be recommended by a majority vote of the College/Library faculty and approved by the Dean/University Librarian and the Provost. 

5.2.7.2 Each Department will develop discipline-specific, department-level elaborations consistent with the College/Library Faculty Performance Expectation Evaluation Elaborations and Procedures. Criteria for teaching faculty may include... 

  • Teaching effectiveness 
  • Advising 
  • Other assigned duties and responsibilities 
  • Scholarly or artistic pursuits in the discipline 
  • Relevant University or community service 

Librarians will be evaluated based on:

Departments may also elect to use the criteria and procedures used in their respective College/Library. In this instance, there must still be a majority vote of the relevant department faculty and approved by the Dean/University Librarian.
