Section IV. Faculty Academic Freedom And Responsibilities
The revised A&M University System Policy 12.01 (Academic Freedom, Responsibility and Tenure) was approved by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents on September 26, 2008. Subsequently, A&M-Commerce revised its Procedure 12.01.99.R0.01 Academic Tenure, Promotion, and Post Tenure Review. The revised procedure consolidates previous university procedures related to faculty evaluation, promotion and tenure, including the post tenure review processes. It also defines academic freedom, particularly as related to tenure, in terms of faculty responsibilities involved. As mentioned earlier in this Handbook, faculty members are encouraged to use the full document when information is needed.
