Before starting the promotion process, review the criteria for track and rank to ensure you meet the requirements. If you have questions about your qualifications, we recommend that you speak with your department chair.
If you are a clinical faculty member (Clinical Series or Clinical Scholar), you can apply for promotion by completing the online dossier. You will need your NetID and password to login. If you need help with your NetID, contact your faculty coordinator.
Once your promotion materials are uploaded to the online dossier, submit it. Your faculty coordinator will be notified. Contact your coordinator if you have any questions throughout the promotion process.
For more information, including a review of the criteria and walkthrough of the online dossier, watch the latest promotion workshop for clinical faculty.
Research or Tenure Faculty
If you are a faculty member on any other track (Research Series, Research Scholar, Educator Scholar or Professor of Practice) or are on the Tenure track, you can apply for promotion by completing the required promotion dossier. The University's Provost Office provides an updated dossier with instructions and promotion workshops (recorded versions available) each spring.
If you have any questions about which dossier to complete, contact your faculty coordinator.
Once your promotion packet is complete, submit it to your faculty coordinator. Include the names and contact information of your potential external evaluators. You may also contact your coordinator if you have any questions throughout the promotion process.
Non-tenure eligible faculty should have six years in their current rank to be considered for promotion. Time in rank from another academic institution, as outlined in the CV, will be taken into consideration.
Tenure-eligible assistant or associate professors have a six-year mandatory review for promotion and tenure during the sixth year. Tenure-eligible faculty, who are initially appointed at the full professor level, have a three-year mandatory review during the third year.
