Reappointment, Promotion & Tenure
OSU Faculty Handbook
Policy, bylaws and matters related to faculty appointments, tenure and promotions can be found in the OSU Faculty Handbook, which was prepared by the Office of Academic Affairs with assistance from representatives of the Faculty Council to help outline important policies and procedures. We encourage our faculty members to bookmark the handbook for ready and useful access.
In several places in the handbook, reference is made to specific OSU Policy and Procedures documents. These can be found here.
Suggestions for improving the OSU Faculty Handbook should be directed to the Office of Academic Affairs, 101 Whitehurst, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
