Revising the Promotion and Tenure Process: A Conversation Space for Faculty Affairs and Academic Leaders

Revising the Promotion and Tenure Process: A Conversation Space for Faculty Affairs and Academic Leaders


Learn how others are approaching revisions to the promotion and tenure process.

Overview

To ensure a fair and contextual evaluation around faculty promotion and tenure during COVID, many colleges and universities adjusted their P&T processes this past year. In many cases — compelled by the ongoing pandemic and the inequities it has brought to light — conversations about further revisions to promotion and tenure criteria are ongoing, centering around questions like:

  • How can we move away from emphasizing conventional student course evaluations and instead look to other forms of evidence of quality teaching?
  • How can we rethink or better measure what counts as service?
  • What adjustments can we make to the promotion and tenure process overall to make it more equitable for women and underrepresented faculty?

If you are an academic leader who is leading or involved in such conversations at your institution, we invite you to join us for a free recorded webcast to examine these and other related questions.

Through a facilitated dialogue with Matt Kinservik, Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs at the University of Delaware and Gabe Paquette, Vice Provost of Academic Affairs at the University of Oregon, you will gain valuable ideas and learn how other institutions across higher education are approaching this process.

Who should attend?

This webcast has been designed for faculty affairs leaders, provosts, vice presidents for academic affairs, deans, and anyone else who may be interested or involved in discussions about reworking faculty promotion and tenure criteria.
