The Department Chair shall inform the new faculty member of the need to maintain a dossier and the kinds of evidence to be included in it. The Department Chair shall also file a copy of the appropriate policy document in the faculty member's dossier, together with the following statement signed by the new faculty member:
I hereby affirm that my Department Chair has informed me about the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion Policy and Procedures of California State University, East Bay. I understand that I am required to create and maintain a dossier of evidence documenting my instructional and professional achievements and other contributions to the University. I understand further that it is my responsibility to know the provisions governing any instance of retention, tenure or promotion for which I may come under review, and to adhere to stipulated time-tables for such reviews.
The Department Chair or Chair Designee shall serve as formal advisor for all faculty eligible for retention, tenure, and/or promotion, discussing the candidate’s progress no later than the end of each academic year.
