Promotion and Tenure Workshops

Promotion and Tenure (P&T) workshops are offered each year in the fall and spring (tenure and promotion to associate professor in the fall; college-track or promotion to full professor in the spring). In these workshops, participants hear remarks from the Provost about the P&T process. These remarks are 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.

What participants say about the Promotion & Tenure Workshops

Faculty need to attend this workshop. It is a MUST DO.

Good information. It was well worth the time – very helpful.

Attend. I was not sure about going up for promotion to full. Now I will.

Promotion and Tenure Portfolio Workshops

The centerpiece of a P&T portfolio is an executive summary that explains why you do what you do as a faculty member and how well you do it. In this workshop, you’ll get guidance from your writing group, which will include a mentor who is a dean or associate dean or is a member of your College P&T committee. Participants from all colleges including the library and all four community colleges are welcome, as are college-track faculty, tenure-track faculty, and faculty going up for full professor.

What participants say about the Promotion and Tenure Portfolio Workshops

You should not go up for promotion or tenure without it. Take it twice—one year early and the year of your promotion or tenure.

I came here Monday completely lost. My mentor helped immensely. She read all my chaotic notes and helped me form a coherent document which I am truly proud of.

You will get more accomplished in 4 days than you would in a month of working on your own.
