      The Georgia Health Sciences University (GHSU) Provost, the Vice President for Instruction and Enrollment Management and Associate Provost, and the Augusta State University Vice President for Academic Affairs are requesting the consolidated library faculty to issue recommendations on tenure for new hires and the post-tenure review expectations for the consolidated library faculty. According to the original charge, the report should compare tenure practices of the Georgia Regents University (GRU) consolidated library faculty to the tenure practices and trends of library faculty at benchmark institutions. However, the list of referent and aspirational institutions based on GRU’s potential Carnegie classification has not been finalized. This creates a challenge to identify definitive institutions with which to compare library tenure policies. The consolidated library faculty are members of the USG Corps of Instruction with faculty status and rank and are eligible for promotion. The consolidated library faculty participate in faculty governance, teaching, and scholarly activities at their respective campuses. The information provided by the consolidated libraries should inform the work of the Consolidation Promotion and Tenure Work Team. The following position paper will provide the background, assessment, and recommendations concerning tenure for library faculty in the consolidated libraries.
