The Committee will review for approval a request to grant tenure upon appointment to one (1)

faculty member, at Pellissippi State Community College who was previously awarded tenure

during his previous employment there.

b. Faculty Promotion Correction

(Vice Chancellor Danny Gibbs)

At the June Board meeting, the Committee reviewed and approved Faculty promotions and the

corresponding increases. Since then, TCAT-Memphis has identified one discrepancy where a

promotion was submitted, and subsequently approved, without the corresponding increase. The

proposed increase is consistent with the other increases provided by TCAT-Memphis for an

individual moving from Associate Instructor to Instructor.
