The Academic Personnel Manual (APM) 210 specifies the criteria that review committees should use in advising on actions concerning appointees in the professor series. The review committee is asked to consider the record of the candidate’s performance in (1) teaching, (2) research and other creative work, (3) professional activity, and (4) University and public service. Superior intellectual attainment is an indispensable qualification for appointment or promotion to tenure positions. This typically means that there is strong evidence of the impact of the candidate's contributions. To read more about the advancement process and advancement criteria, please consult BMAP.
