Promotion & Tenure

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

Below are guidelines for preparing materials for tenure and for promotion for tenured associate professors and teaching and clinical faculty. We encourage each faculty member to work closely with their department chair and dean to plan each step along the path to promotion. Faculty can also take advantage of the Launch@UML program, Career Mapping and Enlightened Bites Lunch Series, as well as other campus workshops, to assist you as you prepare promotion and/or tenure application materials. The Office of the Provost sponsors a listening session with assistant professors each Fall to facilitate discussion about this process, and each Spring sponsors additional workshops to discuss the process and the preparation of materials.

The Promotion and Tenure policies and procedures are maintained by the Provost's Office.

The following resources are available to help you construct your portfolio and connect to the P&T file share for 2019-20.
