Are you preparing for promotion next year? Attend a training session with our promotion committee co-chairs to ensure successful preparation of the promotion dossier materials. 2024 session dates coming soon!


The Office of Faculty Affairs will be providing mandatory training for faculty members who serve on their department's promotion and tenure committee. The goals of these sessions are to reground promotion criteria and address potential bias in departmental promotion and tenure reviews. ODEI will also be present to conduct implicit bias training in relation to promotional review.
