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.
As a coordinated whole, UNLV's instructional development and research services promote UNLV students' academic success by advancing research-based teaching and learning practices across the campus and online. The services described here support the professional development of all members of the UNLV teaching community through a program of research, consultation, events and resources.
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.
Faculty Activity Tracking (Digital Measures)
Digital Measures is a tool for academic faculty to track in- and out-of-classroom instructional; research; creative; clinical and service activities.
