       What is P&T’s role in the hiring of faculty? A representative of P&T meets with every candidate being interviewed, to explain our P&T procedures and criteria and to informally assess the candidate’s potential to meet our standards. Additionally, the committee formally reviews candidates who are proposed for appointment with tenure.

 

       The Committee will put forth a name for nomination to the Campus Budget Oversight Committee.
