III. Board of Regents Policy

    A. Each vice president or chancellor as may be applicable, in the university shall prepare plans for faculty and staff renewal and vitality in accordance with the following regents’ directive for faculty and staff renewal and vitality plans:

        1. The board is committed to retaining and recruiting an excellent faculty and staff in recognition of the fact that high quality personnel is an essential ingredient of a good university. To assist in accomplishing this objective, the board confirms its intent, as evidenced in current personnel policies, programs, and practices to maintain and develop a personnel system that attracts, maintains, and retains quality faculty and staff. It recognizes as paramount the value of maintaining an institutional environment which encourages and rewards effective and outstanding performance, professional advancement, productivity, and the contribution of faculty and staff to the mission of the university and the well being of the state.

        2. The board affirms the importance and necessity for the university to articulate clearly in policy and planning its best efforts to promote, encourage, nurture, and reward continuing quality professional renewal and vitality in its faculty and staff; it is equally important to protect and enhance the traditional institutions of tenure and the sabbatical as contributors to these objectives. In order to assist in accomplishing these objectives and to articulate more clearly the board’s intentions and goals, the following directive on faculty and staffing renewal and vitality is adopted.

        3. The board reaffirms the policy of the university to recruit, retain, and develop a high quality and vigorous professional faculty and staff, and to this end each unit headed by a chancellor is directed to develop and maintain a Faculty and Staff Renewal and Vitality Plan (“Plan”). Such a plan shall include, but not be limited to:

            a. A comprehensive recruitment and appointment plan, which among other objectives makes a provision for opportunities for the regular recruitment of new personnel;

            b. A systematic and thorough faculty and staff professional opportunity and improvement program;

            c. The identification of program and curricular areas and appropriate faculty and staff resources to be required on the basis of enrollment and mission projections for each during the next six years, and policies and procedures which cause faculty and staff resources to be allocated in a balanced manner according to these enrollment and other programmatic needs and demands; and

            d. Clear delineation of responsibilities for implementing that plan.

        4. The plan of each unit shall be utilized by the respective chancellors in recommendation to the president, and in turn by the president, in recommendations to the board concerning academic and service programs, budgets, appointments, promotion, tenure, and other related personnel actions.

        5. The president shall implement this directive by directing each unit to prepare a plan in consultation with his/her staff and with appropriate unit and campus faculty, their representatives, and administrators. Further, the president is delegated the authority to approve such plans and requested to periodically report to the board concerning unit plans approved by him/her.
