The College Wide Personnel and Budget Committee (P&B) is responsible for evaluating faculty appointments, reappointments, promotions, tenure, and leaves. Dr. Gail Mellow, President of LaGuardia Community College, is the Chairperson of the P&B Committee. The College's Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Paul Arcario, and the ten Departmental Chairpersons also serve on the committee. The Executive Director of Human Resources and the Associate Director for Faculty & Staff Relations serve as non-voting members of the committee and are responsible for minutes.
The P&B Committee reviews documentation regarding each faculty member and then votes on each candidate by written and confidential ballot. The decision of the Committee serves as a recommendation to the President. P&B proceedings are private and confidential.

The “Academic Affairs Research/Creative Work Award” is designed to support the scholarly and creative work of sixth-year, tenure-track faculty.This award was instituted in AY2016-17 in response to faculty requests for such support that emerged from the COACHE survey and follow-up discussions.
Recipients receive 3 hours of released time for the academic year in which the award is granted. The number of awards per year depends upon available budget. Proposals are read “blindly” and ranked (using a rubric) by the academic chairpersons (they do not read proposals from their own departments). Awards are made in order of the ranking scores received.

February 13, 2018. Motion: Eligibility for promotion (Handbook, pg. 21) to be amended from “Effective for all full-time tenure-track faculty hired as of fall 2011” to “Effective for all full-time tenure-track faculty hired as of fall 2018.” Motion was approved. March 13, 2018. Motion: All new full-time faculty are expected to participate in the Provost’s Learning Space (PLS) during their first year at the college. Starting with their 3rd Action 2nd Reappointment evaluation, faculty will use the “Self-Report on Teaching Goal” template to report on their teaching for each reappointment action. The “Self-Report on Teaching Goal” template should be submitted as a separate document in addition to the department Chair’s evaluation; the chair should write an evaluative comment on the Self-Report in the Primary Function section of the evaluation. For the 3rd Action 2nd Reappointment evaluation only, faculty may choose to have this Self-Report also serve as their Major Contribution. Motion was approved. March 13, 2018. Motion: If Student Instructional Reports (SIRs) are not available at the time when a faculty evaluation is conducted, and there are concerns about the SIRs outcomes, a guidance memorandum will be issued by the department Chair to the faculty when the SIRs become available. Also, for actions where SIRs are not available at the time of the evaluation, Chairs will present the SIRs at the appropriate P&B meeting. [Note: SIRs from previous instructional staff titles (Instructor or Lecturer) should not be considered for faculty in their professorial titles]. Motion was approved.
