Appointments, Promotions and Tenure (APT)

Standards for the Appointments, Promotions and Tenure (APT) process at UNC-Chapel Hill are governed by the Trustee Policies and Regulations Governing Academic Tenure in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in addition to the School’s Appointments, Promotion and Tenure Manual.

The APT Committee meets regularly, on a monthly basis (2015-2016 meeting schedule), to review appointment, reappointment or promotion actions within the School that meet the criteria necessitating an assessment, as outlined in the APT Manual. Members of the APT Committee represent various academic disciplines within the School and are appointed by the dean for three-year terms.
