Preparing Your (Pre-)Promotion Packet

Tue, 28 May 2024 10:00 AM - Fri, 31 May 2024 4:00 PM

This program is for faculty who are on the way to their next promotion and could use a community to aid in the preparation process. This includes faculty who are going up for tenure this year or next, faculty planning for mid-tenure review in 2024-25, faculty who have been tenured for 2-3 years and are wondering what they have to do to be ready for full professor in another 2-3 years, or faculty who have been in renewable-term appointments for a few years and will be eligible for promotion soon.

If you belong to one of those groups, join this community of colleagues for an intensive week-long institute to identify questions that need to answer and materials that you need to assemble, and to create first drafts of portions of your narrative — as well as give to, and receive feedback from, your colleagues. (A full dossier writing retreat will be offered later this summer.)

Dates & Times: Tuesday, 5/28, through Thursday, 5/30, from 10 AM - 12 PM, and Friday, 5/31, from 9 - 11 AM

Location: Rose Library 5211


Genre: Institute
