Promotion & Tenure Home

What's New:

The timeline for the 2015-2016 cycle has been posted.

Referee letter criteria has been updated for 15-16.

Departments should have received their eligibility lists.  Contact the P&T Office if you have not.

The regular Promotion and Tenure (P&T) cycle begins each spring and lasts approximately 14 months.  The department chair requests promotion and/or award of tenure.  All requests are reviewed by the department, School of Medicine, and University (Provost's Office).  The promotion and tenure process has a strict timeline based on the Provost's Office deadlines.  It is important for department chairs and candidates to be familiar with the schedule and process.

Each department has a designated contact responsible for entering all candidate and referee data into the P&T data entry system.  The contact coordinates the P&T process with the Dean's Office.

For questions or more information about P&T, please contact:
