Tenure & Promotion (ASPT)

About ASPT

The (Faculty) Appointment, Salary, Promotion, and Tenure (or ASPT) system at Illinois State University prescribes policies and procedures related to probationary and tenured faculty. The system sets forth levels of achievement necessary for sustained progress in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service. The system is intended to appoint, reward, and retain a highly competent faculty through a democratic system that involves faculty in the evaluation of professional competence.

ASPT policies applicable to probationary and tenured faculty in all academic units at the University are set forth in the Faculty Appointment, Salary, Promotion, and Tenure Policies document approved by the Faculty Caucus of the Academic Senate. The document is reviewed and revised at least every five years. The most recent review of the document was completed by the Faculty Caucus in spring 2016. In June 2016 President Larry Dietz accepted document revisions recommended by the Faculty Caucus. The new edition, ASPT 2017, will be effective January 1, 2017. 

University-wide ASPT policies are supplemented by ASPT policies on the college level (college ASPT standards) and by policies at the department/school level (Department Faculty Status Committee ASPT policies or School Faculty Status Committee ASPT policies).

ASPT Committees

The ASPT system at Illinois State University is administered by a tiered system of committees elected by tenure-line faculty members. On the university-level, the University Review Committee recommends university-wide ASPT policies to the Faculty Caucus (see University Policies above), reviews and approves college-level ASPT standards, considers department/school ASPT policies upon request, and renders interpretations of university-wide ASPT policies. Also on the university-level, the Faculty Review Committee considers appeals of promotion and tenure decisions. Development and administration of college-level ASPT policies is the responsibility of the College Faculty Status Committee (CFSC) in each college. Development and administration of academic unit-level ASPT policies is the responsibility of the Department Faculty Status Committee (DFSC) or School Faculty Status Committee (SFSC) in each unit.
