The Office of Academic Affairs recognizes and affirms the important role the tenure process plays at City Colleges of Chicago.

There is a new tenure process that is being implemented for all full-time faculty hired to begin teaching in Fall 2013. The new process includes a support structure called the Tenure Assistance Program (TAP).

Full-time faculty hired to teach before Fall 2013 will follow the existing tenure process. 

The Office of Academic Affairs ensures ethical, rigorous, and fair tenure standards across all City Colleges and is committed to supporting faculty pursuing tenure in both of these processes. On this website, you will find information, training materials, procedures, and forms that support the tenure processes at City Colleges of Chicago.
