Promotion and Tenure

Promotion & Tenure

As the University’s Faculty Handbook states, each academic department is responsible for determining what constitutes evidence for promotion and/or tenure (Section 205.03.1.3).

Departmental Promotion & Tenure Guidelines

Departmental Production/Publication Standards

To specify the types of activity that merit production/publication credit, some departments’ guidelines refer to the Promotion & Tenure Production/Publication Standards used by the College prior to 2014. Other departments have devised their own standards, which supersede this list.

College-wide Requirements

Candidates in all departments must earn the following number of production/publication credits.

  • 2 production/publication credits to move from Assistant to Associate Professor
  • 3 production/publication credits to move from Associate to Full Professor
  • 1 production/publication credit for each post-tenure review

In addition, all departments must use pages 1 and 3 of the Promotion & Tenure/Post-Tenure Evaluation Form. Page 2 is a sample and should be replaced by the list of evidentiary categories applicable to the candidate’s department.
