College Promotion and Tenure Committee
"The tenured and tenure-track faculty from each college will elect the members  of the College Promotion and Tenure Committee. The composition of the College Promotion and Tenure Committee may vary from college to college, but in no case will consist of fewer than five tenured faculty members. College guidelines will be followed in cases where there are inadequate numbers of tenured and senior faculty to constitute a college committee for the purpose of promotion and tenure recommendations. Department heads will not serve on the College Promotion and Tenure Committee, nor will committee members serve on reviews of faculty members from their own departments. In cases of promotion, members must hold ranks equal to or higher than the rank to which the candidate is to be promoted. The college dean and department heads may appear before the College Promotion and Tenure Committee to present information; however, the college dean and department heads will not be present during College Promotion and Tenure Committee deliberations and voting. These College Promotion and Tenure Committee procedures apply to the University Library and to Alamogordo, Carlsbad, and Grants Branch Campus Community Colleges (all of which use only one Promotion and Tenure Committee), with the following exception: Promotion and Tenure Committee members may serve on the committee and review faculty members in their own departments."
(NMSU Policy Manual Section 5.9)
