Promotion & Tenure

The major objectives of promotion and tenure are to provide a faculty committed to excellence and to provide a substantial degree of security to those persons who have exhibited excellent abilities, sufficient to convince the University of Nevada, Las Vegas community that their expected services and performances in the future justify the privileges afforded by promotion and tenure.

Awards & Recognition

UNLV and the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents recognize the achievements of faculty in teaching, research/creative activity, and service with a number of awards each year; as well as those achievements of undergraduate and graduate advisors and undergraduate and graduate scholars.


In the area of Academic Research the office coordinates with the Division of Research to support faculty scholarly productivity and facilitate opportunities for sponsored research and external contracts, as well as developing internal standards for the evaluation of scholarly, creative and clinical achievement.
