Promotion and tenure

Medical School faculty requesting promotion to associate professor or professor across all Medical School tracks must submit a dossier which will be voted on at the departmental, collegiate, and University levels.

Dossiers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF document with bookmarks. Guides for creating these documents can be obtained on the Forms page.

Promotion and Tenure Committee

Policies regarding external letters have changed. Read the instructions regarding external letters in the model dossier to ensure compliance. If your dossier does not meet the requirements, it cannot be considered by the collegiate committee and will be returned to the departments for amendment. It is required that the faculty list their relationship with the reviewers in this section. An example of this document and its suggested language can be viewed here

The promotion and tenure dossiers submission deadline for the 2015-2016 academic year (fiscal year 2016) is September 15, 2015. If you have additional questions, contact the Office of Faculty Affairs at 612-624-5442.
