What are things I can do to best help students who are struggling? (External Link - also consult the Center for Learning and Teaching)

I have a student who has plagiarized or cheated. What are the standards? (Office of Honor)

How do I report plagiarism or cheating? log on to mybyuh and click on the Instructor tab and then fill in the online Honor Code Violation Form

Rank and Status Electronic Portfolio Template

For sample portfolios, contact colleagues in your department or across campus

Third-year/Sixth-year Review Timetable


Policy for those hired before 2016 who opt to stay on the pre-2016 model (to apply for CFS before rank advancement)

Changes in process from the pre-2016 document that are now in effect:

  • There will be a department review committee as a step in the process in addition to the letters by the chair and the dean.
  • External and internal letters for the file will be solicited by the department chair (with suggestions from the candidate) rather than directly by the candidate.
  • The steps of notification to the candidate during the review in the new policy will apply.
  • Even if CFS is granted later than the usual time, the three-year wait after CFS is not binding and a faculty member may still apply for rank advancement after six years from the time of hire.
  • The appeals process of the new policy is available to all on the old policy.
