To assist new faculty with Rice policies and procedures, the Provost hosts an orientation each year. At this time, the various faculty and student leaders introduce and give insight to the undergraduate and graduate programs and to the life at Rice. Though this is not mandatory, the orientation also provides new faculty with an opportunity to network. Packets of information are also distributed, and below you will find useful web sites with information about the guidelines for faculty appointments, promotion, tenure and renewal of contracts that can now be found on the web. (Please note that with regard to tenure and promotion, there are two sets of guidelines, one for those faculty who are governed by Policy #201-87 and one for those governed by Policy #201-01.
