The Promotion and Tenure (P&T) policies and procedures are maintained by the Provost's Office.
The Office of the Provost sponsors workshops to discuss the process and the preparation of materials each spring. In addition, we encourage each faculty member to work closely with their department chair and dean to plan each step along the path to promotion. Faculty planning to apply for promotion and/or tenure in 2021, future candidates, department chairs and deans are welcome to attend.
