Governance Documents

The administration of the Ohio State Department of English, as well as its processes for appointing, promoting, and tenuring faculty, are governed by the policies and procedures outlined in the following two documents: 

Pattern of Administration (POA) [pdf]

Faculty Appointments, Promotion, and Tenure: Criteria and Procedures (APT) [pdf]

These documents are prepared by the department and submitted for final review and approval by the university's Office of Academic Affairs (OAA). The department's current POA and APT documents were reviewed and approved by OAA in September 2015.
