Tenured Faculty - Promotion to Professor (or equivalent)
Promotion of a tenured faculty member shall normally be considered during the fifth year in rank, with promotion effective at the beginning of the sixth year. Applying prior to completing four years of service as an Associate Professor, Associate Librarian, or SSP-AR II Counselor is considered applying for early promotion.
This review is considered to be a full-review, and like full-reviews in the tenure-track process, this review is cumuluative .
Candidates for 2019-2020 actions are to submit their materials through Interfolio, the evaluation system implemented in 2017-2018. The template that candidates undergoing full performance reviews will use mirrors the requirements of UPS 210.020 and is listed below in the Templates Section. This page also provides several different types of resources to aid and assist in the compilation of the RTP Portfolio. For Librarians and Counselors there are a few documents that are specific to their portfolios, and they are noted below.
For more information on RTP, please see the slides from our latest candidate workshops .
The Promotion Declaration Form must be submitted by the faculty member by the end of the second week of classes of the fall semster ( September 6, 2019 for the 19-20 AY ) to indicate whether they:
- Want to be considered for normative-time promotion, or
- Want to be considered for early promotion.
- Do not want to be considered for promotion
PROMOTION APPLICATION TIMETABLE FOR 2019-2020
In the scenario below, the tenured faculty member applying for promotion would provide a portfolio covering the period of time from their tenure and promotion submission (October, 2014) to the file due date in October, 2019. Per UPS 210.000: "Accomplishments documented for the promotion to Associate Professor shall not count again for promotion to Professor."
