Promotion & Tenure

The Office of the Provost manages the promotion and tenure procedures in accord with the MSP contract. 

Below are guidelines for preparing the dossiers for tenure and for promotion for tenured associate professors and for those on the lecturer track. We encourage each teaching or tenure track faculty member to work closely with their department chair and dean to plan each step along the path to promotion. We encourage faculty to take advantage of the Launch@UML program, Career Mapping and Enlightened Bites Lunch Series as well as other workshops to increase the information that you have to assist you. The Office of the Provost sponsors a listening session with assistant professors each Fall where promotion and tenure is discussed and each Spring sponsors additional workshops to discuss the dossiers in details.
