This page offers clarification of the five criteria used in personnel decisions for faculty members at SUNY Oswego. The five criteria were adopted by the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York (1989) and are published in Article XII, Title A of the Policies of the Board of Trustees. Campus expectations in relation to each criterion are described below.
Faculty members are encouraged to use this document to understand the expectations of SUNY and of SUNY Oswego. When preparing their documentation for personnel decisions, faculty members will be expected to reflect on the meaning of their accomplishments in each of the five criteria. Departments and divisional committees will use these criteria to guide their evaluations of candidates’ accomplishments and to make recommendations to the appropriate dean and Provost regarding renewal of term appointments beyond second year, continuing appointments, promotions, and discretionary salary increases.
