IMPORTANT: Faculty Forum for Associate Professors and RPT Committee Members.
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.

The data are collected from CCAS member institutions, with the results made available as an Excel file to participating members free of charge (note: non-participating members will be charged a fee of $150 to access the data).
