Rank, promotion, and tenure policies and procedures are established in the BOR/COHE Agreement. Each college or department has adopted standards for achieving promotion and tenure. When a faculty member is applying for promotion and/or tenure, they should write their application using those standards to explain why they should be promoted and/or tenured. For more information on the various standards documents, the individual should contact the appropriate department chair.
The promotion and tenure process adopted by the Black Hills State University Promotion and Tenure Committee (revised in 1995 and 1997) are available in the offices of the college deans and/or in the Office of Academic Affairs in Woodburn 218.
