Tenure & Promotion

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

The Tenure and Promotion Workshop is geared to full-time faculty (Seidenberg, Dyson, College of Health Professions, Lubin, and the School of Education) currently at the Assistant Professor level applying for tenure and promotion to the rank of Associate Professor. In addition, the workshop is geared toward tenured, full-time faculty at the Associate Professor level wishing to apply to rank of Full Professor.
