Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Promotion and Tenure

Our office 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 tenure guideline gives you a detailed overview of the policy. We also encourage you to ask your department for more details.

The Promotion and Tenure Request for Non-Creditable Year document is available on our forms page.
