This site presents information relevant to SUNY Oneonta faculty applying for renewal, tenure (“continuing appointment”) or promotion. The site includes a calendar of relevant deadlines; the SUNY Board of Trustees and SUNY Oneonta renewal, tenure and promotion policies; a description of the renewal, promotion and tenure processes at SUNY Oneonta; and a glossary of terms.
Please note that starting in the ‘22-‘23 academic year, there are two sets of guidelines and corresponding templates available for faculty use as follows:
The new guidelines and template (associated with the RTP Agreement) are for use by:
- faculty beginning employment in fall ’22 or beyond;
- faculty employed in ’21-’22 or prior who opt into the new guidelines/template as described below;
- tenured faculty seeking promotion.
The former guidelines and template (in place before fall ‘22) may be used through continuing appointment by faculty in service during the ‘21-‘22 academic year and prior—unless the faculty member elects to fall under the new guidelines/template by notifying their dean of this “irrevocable decision” by Sept 30 of the application year.
Dates and deadlines are the same for users of both guidelines/templates. Faculty who will be evaluated under the new guidelines will compile a Professional Development Portfolio, using not only the template published on this site but also the disciplinary-specific Guidelines and Criteria provided by their department. All faculty and librarians will be evaluated based upon the Board of Trustees policies and UUP contract and guidelines.
