Tenure & Promotion

The Faculty Center for Innovative Teaching and Professional Development holds annual Tenure and Promotion Information Sessions for faculty coming up for tenure and/or promotion.

The Tenure and Promotion Information Session is geared to full-time tenure-track faculty (Seidenberg, Dyson, College of Health Professions, Lubin, and the School of Education) applying for tenure and promotion. In addition, the workshop is also geared toward tenured, full-time faculty wishing to apply for promotion.

Here is a recording of the Tenure and Promotion Information Session Webinar and a copy of the presentation (PDF) from the webinar.

Please submit any questions you have to Ally Kimmel or Joan Walker.

Markers of Excellence

Tenure and promotion are significant transitions in a faculty member’s career. It is critical that the accomplishments of a candidate be properly described in the tenure and promotion dossier. A well-prepared dossier is very helpful to dossier evaluators in order to make informed tenure and promotion decisions. These guidelines are intended to help faculty, chairs, and deans get a clear idea of their roles and responsibilities for the preparation of tenure and/or promotion dossiers. They describe the evaluation process and clarify general university-level expectations. These expectations are interpreted in each school and department using the markers of excellence. (These Markers of Excellence can be obtained by contacting Department Chair or School Dean, they are also available in Policy and Forms on the Provost website.)
