ER-19: Interdisciplinary Research in Tenure and Promotion
Does the institution's treatment of interdisciplinary research meet the criteria for this credit?:
A brief description or a copy of the institution’s policy regarding interdisciplinary research:
Our institution demonstrates its commitment to interdisciplinary research in evaluation practice and policy. In practice, the professional record of successfully tenured and promoted faculty demonstrates significant interdisciplinary work on the part of many scholars. This is evidence of interdisciplinary value in the tenure and promotion process. In policy, each professional growth evaluation is conducted by a home department under that department's guidelines. Many of these guidelines have statements such as "within the liberal arts environment, it is desirable that the faculty be composed of diverse individuals with varying interests and different areas of expertise. Because of this heterogeneity, it is to be expected that the set of activities which constitute a high level of professional growth will vary from individual to individual within the department.
