Enhanced Post-Tenure Performance Review

Enhanced Post-Tenure Performance Review (EPPR) is an expanded and in-depth performance evaluation conducted by a committee of tenured peers and administered by the chief academic officer.  An EPPR must be initiated when the chief academic officer determines that a faculty member has:

  • requested an EPPR, after at least four annual performance review cycles since the last enhanced review (such as a previous EPPR or a review in connection with tenure or promotion);
  • received one overall annual performance ratings of “Falls Far Short of Expectations;” or
  • received two overall annual performance ratings of “Falls Short of Expectations” during any four consecutive annual performance review cycles; or
  • been deemed to fail to satisfy expectations for rank by a Periodic Post-Tenure Performance Review (PPPR) committee.

The EPPR process is described in more detail in Section 3.8.5 of the UTK Faculty Handbook and corresponding appendix.
