PRO324 Supporting Tenure and Promotion Activities in your Department
This workshop is designed to increase administrative staff members’ understanding of the tenure/permanent status and promotion processes for faculty so that they may support those efforts more effectively. Workshop objectives include:
- Define tenure, permanent status, and promotion for both tenured and non-tenure accruing faculty
- Discuss timing of the Tenure and Promotion (T&P) process, including probationary periods, “Tenure When Ready,” and “Stopping the Tenure Clock”
- Review the T&P process, including T&P packet composition
- Identify the role of administrative staff in assisting faculty throughout the T&P process
Lists and descriptions of all UF security roles may be found on the Identity & Access Management website.
Security roles should be requested through college DSAs. If you have questions about security roles, please contact Deanna Nelson, Faculty Relations Coordinator, at (352) 273-1773.
