The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs handles promotion and tenure questions for faculty. While the university does have its own guidelines on promotion and tenure, it is expected that all 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. Our university promotion and tenure documents gives you a detailed overview of the policy. We also encourage you to ask your department for more details.
