The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs handles promotion and tenure questions for faculty.

Ball State has University-wide guidelines on promotion and tenure, and the colleges and departments add additional elements not found in our standard document.

Promotion and tenure for every faculty member are dependent on the particular assignment and are defined by University, college, and departmental documents.

Review our documents for a detailed overview of the policy. We also encourage you to ask your department for more details.
