Role of the APT Commitee
The APT Committee is advisory to the Provost and consists of thirteen full professors including the Chair. Members are drawn from various disciplines and schools from across the University and serve for three year terms. They are nominated by the Executive Committee of the Academic Council (ECAC) and appointed by the Provost. The Committee is charged with evaluating candidates for appointment or promotion to tenure, or promotion to Full Professor. The President, the Provost, and the Dean of the Graduate School serve as nonvoting ex-officio members of this demanding Committee. (The Law School and the Clinical Sciences of the Medical Center have separate but analogous Committees.) .
