Preparing Your Promotion Packet Session

The Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs will host a session, Preparing your Promotion Packet (Wednesday) August 28, from 1-4 p.m. in the MUB Alumni Lounge. The first half of the session (1:00-2:15) will focus on the mechanics of preparing a well-presented promotion and/or tenure packet and will include input from deans and insights from faculty members who have served on college-level P&T committees. The second half of the session (2:30-4:00) will focus on how to input data and narratives into Digital Measures to produce a complete Faculty Activity Report (FAR) for the P&T package.

All faculty are welcome; those who plan to submit a P&T package in the next couple of years are especially encouraged to attend as the Faculty Activity Report (Tenure and Promotion) is required as part of the promotion packet. Faculty may attend just one part of the session as their schedule allows.

Please complete this Google form by August 23 to register.
