REALLY IMPORTANT: Faculty Forum for Associate Professors and RPT Committee Members. Chairs and DRC Members should also attend.
Please see the flyer. I STRONGLY encourage your associate professors to attend, especially those who are several years away from the review. This provides important guidance on university expectations for promotion to full professors. In addition, DRC members should attend as well. It is important for DRC members to understand the expectations of the college and university for promotion reviews, not just the department. Finally, if you have not attended one of these forums in the past, I encourage you to make time, if you can.
Goal: Dr. Joan Lorden, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and the
Deans or their appointees will provide information on pathways to promotion
from Associate Professor to Full Professor to provide clarity to mid-career
faculty regarding criteria for promotion
When and Where:
• Thursday, March 29, 2018; 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
