Report from Committee on Professional Matters

University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Faculty Senate

November 15, 2010

Second Report Regarding Proposed Amendments to

Criteria for Tenure and Promotion of University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Faculty

In our October 19 report, the Committee on Professional Matters (CPM) made the following conclusions

and recommendations.

The Committee on Professional Matters does not recommend that UHMFS support the revisions as

proposed. Below, we articulate each of our recommendations.

The five proposed amendments were

regarding

CPM

1. delegated authority for approving

waivers (p.4)

CPM recommends that the UHMFS support amendment #1.

2. articulation of authorship

conventions (p.7-9)

CPM requests additional time to better address the comments

from UHM faculty on amendment #2.

3. associate professor and researcher

tenure and promotion language

(p.10-11)

CPM requests that VCAA’s Office provide the origin of the

“well on their way” phrase and rationale behind the proposed

modification. With the origin of wording and rationale, CPM

will recommend that the UHMFS support amendment #3.

4. Deans' authority to consider dossier

after TPRC assessment (p.15)

CPM requests that amendment #4 be revised to reflect the

exact language of the UHPA contract on p.24 rather than an

interpretation of the contract language. We also ask that the

following be inserted after the contract language.

“Consideration by the Dean is for review only. This step is not

an opportunity for the Dean to provide an additional

assessment .” With that change, we also recommend that

UHMFS support amendment #4.

5. relationship of external evaluator to

faculty applicant (p.19)

CPM requests additional time to better address the comments

from UHM faculty on amendment #5.

In response on October 19, 2010, VCAA Reed Dasenbrock provided rationale for items 2, 3, 4, and 5.

In item 2, VCAA Dasenbrock agreed that the language needs to be further reviewed in terms of authorship

conventions. The committee and OVCAA’s office agreed to continue working on the wording and have a

final version for Senate consideration at the February 2011 meeting. Submission to UHPA is needed in

March 2011 at the latest.

In item 3, VCAA Dasenbrock shared that the wording came from discussion with various unit directors.

CPM now supports item #3.In item 4, VCAA Dasenbrock agreed to remove the changed language and quote the UHPA Contract

language. CPM now supports item #4.

In item 5, VCAA Dasenbrock agreed that the language needs to be further reviewed in terms of external

evaluators and the issue of time and objectivity. The committee and OVCAA’s office agreed to continue

working on the wording and have a final version for Senate consideration at the February 2011 meeting.

Submission to UHPA is needed in March 2011 at the latest.

Recommendations

CPM asks that the Senate vote on items #1, 3, and 4. CPM is in favor of those three proposed changes.

CPM asks that we revisit items 2 and 5 at the February 2011 meeting.
