Webinar: Tenure and Promotion Information Session

To accommodate those who cannot attend the TAP Information Session on Friday, February 21, a webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 26th from 12:10-1:10pm. This webinar will present questions asked at the February 21 session and the answers that were provided by the Deans and representatives of TAP committees, Department Chairs, and recently Tenured/Promoted Faculty. It will also review the TAP 2020-2021 timeline and guidelines. Note: Panelists participating in the February 21 session (e.g., Deans, TAP committee members) will not attend this webinar.

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


Preparing for TAP Evaluations Session for Committees, Chairs, and Deans

With any process there is room for improvement. As you prepare to participate in the Tenure and/or Promotion process, the Faculty Center is holding a session to review the TAP timeline, required forms, Interfolio, and, with Pace’s Chief Diversity Officer Tiffany Hamilton, to explore methods to minimize bias in the review process. This one-hour session is being offered to anyone who will participate in the TAP process this year, including Department Chairs, Deans and those who will serve on the TAP committees.

Date: Thursday, September 17
Time: 3:25 p.m. - 4:25 p.m.

The 2020 TAP Guidelines:

  • were approved in 2016 by the Faculty Council;
  • state that all documents are confidential (candidates cannot see them) except for the documents in the Faculty eDossier (which are the following documents: CV, Executive Summary, and Teaching, Research, and Service material);
  • state that there should be 5 external evaluations. However, the guidelines are silent on any implications of not receiving this number of reviews. Due to the pandemic, academics invited to review may not have been able to provide an evaluation for our TAP candidates;
  • state that a “form” for evaluation is to be used and submitted to the next stage in the review. Therefore, this form is required. Please note that the guidelines do not prevent including information/documentation in addition to the form.
    • Note: use Adobe Reader (free) or Adobe DC Pro when filling out the form. Do not use Preview or other applications as data entered may not be saved.
