Notification of Decision
2. After receiving the recommendation of the Dean's Advisory Committee on Promotion and Tenure, the Dean will forward a recommendation to the Provost and notify the Department Chair of the recommendation. Upon notification of the Provost's decision, the Dean will write to the Department Chair and to the candidate informing them of the decision.
Guidelines for Appeal
3. In the event of a negative decision, the candidate has the right of appeal. Ordinarily, the candidate would first confer with the Chair or the Dean to seek an informal resolution or explanation of the decision. If not settled informally, the candidate may appeal to the Dean to convoke the FAS Faculty Grievance Committee, which is a standing committee of elected faculty members. The Grievance Committee, after reviewing the case, will advise the Dean of their recommendation. After reviewing the recommendation of the FAS Grievance Committee, the Dean will notify the candidate of his final decision.
4. Should the decision not be satisfactory to the candidate, he or she may appeal to the President to convene the Faculty Council Grievance Committee, an advisory body made up of faculty from different schools within NYU. It makes its recommendations to the President. Grievance procedures are explained in The Faculty Handbook.
