Promotion & Tenure

Promotion and tenure are important milestones in a faculty member's career.

Promotion and tenure is a rigorous process involving multiple layers of review and begins with the hiring process.

2016-2017 Promotion & Tenure Cycle

Faculty members applying for promotion and tenure will document their teaching, creative, research/scholarly and service contributions and have this record reviewed at several levels within the University and by external reviewers in their field.
