Promotion and Tenure Workshops

Promotion and Tenure (P&T) workshops are offered through the Teaching Academy each year in the fall and spring (tenure and promotion to associate professor in the fall; college-track and promotion to full professor in the spring). In these workshops, participants hear remarks from the Provost about the P&T process at NMSU followed by a working session in which participants view sample successful portfolios from their colleges and speak to their college deans and/or P&T committee reps about P&T requirements and strategies.

Promotion & Tenure Portfolio Workshops

A promotion and tenure portfolio includes a CV, a 4- to 20-page (depending on your college) executive summary (narrative), and a documentation file (appendices). The portfolio explains why you do what you do as a faculty member, how you do it, and how well you do it. In this workshop, you’ll get daily feedback from your writing group, which will include peers and a mentor who has successfully navigated promotion and tenure. This program is offered every summer.

New Faculty Orientation

Participants in the annual New Faculty Orientation hear from the Teaching Academy, the Office of Research, and the Office of the Provost. Participants engage in a resource fair featuring about 20 support offices on campus, including the Library and Benefits. The day concludes with the deputy provost addressing annual performance evaluations and the provost sharing what he wished he had known when he was a new faculty member, much of which is about promotion and tenure.
